A little about me...
We had a break in the clouds last night and I was able to see a falling meteorite from the Leonid Showers. All month I've been enjoying watching Venus, Mars, and Jupiter lined up in the Eastern sky. It was great when the moon met up with them, too. And last week, I thought for a moment I was seeing double as I stared at Venus. And then I realized, it must have aligned with Mars. So that seeming cross-eyed convergence was memorable, too.
As I get older, I find myself appreciating the heavens ever more as what will reign over history for so long after I'm gone. Age brings with it a new perspective. Used to be I thought of ghosts as from the past. Now I'm sitting here, realizing this structure I'm within will likely survive me, too, and there will new occupants with me sort of a ghost yet to come. But, then, I've been a ghost for a long time. I mean, you can't move from a home without becoming one. It was over fifty years ago we moved from our home in Ottawa and left our ghosts behind. That home still stands, though my uncle said it's beginning to look run down. I remember when it was brand new and we were the first to move in. I even recall my dad sitting at our kitchen table designing the place. So I guess, then, the house was onl
About the one I'm looking for...
As I was saying, the house was only in my dad's mind. But I suppose all man-made objects were once that way. Is it any wonder there have been philosophers for thousands of years who have asserted we live within mind rather than matter?
Oh, well! Never mind.
Really, does it matter?
There we go, another convergence of mind over matter.
Can't stop seeing cross-eyed.
They even named a candy after it.
Now you see it. That's of the 'Mind.'
Now you don't, as 'Mind' joins with 'Matter.' And that's 'M&Ms.' We're even left with a bag full of ghosts at the end. If Pavlov were still around, he could tell us whether ghosts make us drool.
So I guess the ideal woman for me would be one with a last name like, 'McGillicuddy,' because then we'd be 'Me and McGillicuddy,' or 'M&Ms, which sounds nice. And that says something about me, I suppose. I mean, I could have said, 'sweet,' rather than 'nice' but ruled it out for multiple reasons.
As for who I’m looking, in a few great moments of fortune, I’ve fallen for women who were completely different from any woman I'd ever known. Hence, beforehand, I wouldn't have said she was who I was looking for, since I didn't yet know she or any such woman existed.
I'd just like to add...
If there really is an afterlife for us, the rest of eternity, I wonder. Would we retain our limited brain cells or would we become gods with ever-increasing knowledge of the universe as trillions upon trillions of what we once called years passed? If we aren't to become gods, how long before we begin to forget this existence? We seem to have about enough brain space to last a lifetime. So what of a hundred trillion years from now after we've been in heaven a trillion times longer than our time on earth? Wouldn't this existence be so thoroughly forgotten, we may as well call our putative, future, eternal selves reincarnated? And if we do that, how far a stretch would it be to consider that baby in someone's arms, as we die, but ourselves, in another form? When you take away memories and once-familiar bodies, what distinguishes between you and me?
