Past Silhouettes


Silhouettes of the past flow before my sight giving me food for thought as I remember what used to be when young.
A photographic memory, everything is relived over and over again throughout life without ending.
Seeing, feeling intensely, all of it forever, is a gift and at times a curse worse than death.
Living for peace, going within and finding peace through deepest contemplation hidden inside.
