A human being in general

I miss faces and places from the past, but I know I don't want to miss out on faces and places from my future. (may 20, 07)

I look back a lot, and I figure that's just how I make sense of things. I would have been the woman that turned to salt.

But tell me, how can we appreciate the better if we have never seen the worst, of if we don't look back and reflect on it? How do we know if we're going in the right direction if we don't take a moment to examine our paths? Even in heaven, we'll have to have memory so that we know what's been given to us by grace. We have to know where we come from, we have to know who helped us in the way.... so we can recognize the gifts in the future and now.
