APP or REP -rehensive?

No reason to make a big deal about it, and strangely, I’m not perturbed or worried that I’ll once again fall into that pit.

Tomorrow is the first day of twenty-four and Mermaids don’t often see what lies outside of their own habitat, so it should be enlightening, to be sure.

Occasionally I’ll feel a twinge of memory and past that tempts me back to a romantic, fervent time – only a third of my life, and most of the makeup of my feelings. But this isn’t really a revisiting, is it? It’s more like a slow, sensuous stroll through the Museum, holding hands gently and commenting on the exhibits with fond, knowing glances and subtle affirmations just barely escaping our restrained lips.

Restrained from what?

Maybe from speaking the truth, or from accusing great travesties, or more damaging things…pleasurable for a moment and carrying untold punishment only to be realized at a later time.

But the stroll through the old halls should be pleasant, and regenerative for our youth, our memories, and for our acknowledgment that no Mistakes need ever be committed.

“Even if we drink I don’t think we would kiss in the way that we did when the woman was only a girl…”
