A new year revolution

Posted by Simon Parke, 31 December 2019, 2.49pm

The past is stale bread

The future is no bread

The present is fresh bread

So as 2020 unfolds we will give the past its due but not its power

And we shall nod to the future but refrain from undue attention

And return again and again to the present whether sad, serene or a wild-horse-throwing-me-sideways moment

We shall be here now

For only in this place is there life

The past being stale bread

The future, no bread

And the present, fresh bread

So here we are
