Just realised I’m a hopeless dreamer. And many would be forgiven for thinking that I dwell on the past or live in yesterdays. I don’t. I guess I reminisce often so that I am reminded of the similarities between what I have now, and what I may have taken for granted back then. The greatest challenge for me has always been my inability to focus on the present moment. In many ways, this constant reflection helps me to understand the importance of what is happening now, relative to the future, when I see it within the context of my past. I’m a complicated old soul.
