less sorry than before

i am not usually the new years resolution type, although i like to think i have inner resolve, but what else can one do while stuck at an airport during a blizzard but contemplate opportunities for growth…  and redemption from mistakes of the past? i think this is healthier than eating airport pizza.

but supposing i could single out one resolution, i would resolve to apologize with exponentially less frequency than i have in this incarnation… to not say “i’m sorry” so reflexively, even when stopping on the street to tie my shoes. this is not to imply that i am not sorry…. but i’d like to try to say “i’m sorry” only when i am absolutely guilty. but i am also resolving to live with less guilt and greater compassion.  because guilt is dead weight while compassion is breathing and alive.

About The Lost Pedestrian

In my wanderings throughout the moments/days/years, I try in earnest to find the mystical within the mundane and the mundane within the mystical, oftentimes confusing one from the other. I have wandered and roamed through many a city, many a town, in a state of wonder and bewilderment, without necessarily going anywhere. I am easily lost, but eventually found. (I am guessing you have just found me). My sincere hope is that you will find Something in this warehouse of thought, memory and false memory, words, numbers, tangents, murmurs, echoes (lots and lots of echoes), voices, dreams, and other paraphernalia.
