Our memories shape us, creating a background tone for our life and setting us up for a future conditioned by our past no matter what we do there. Living to redeem our past or to repeat it are equally bound to it, and we cannot step away from how we got here to just be here, free to do what needs to be done apart from the influence of all that has happened. Or failed to happen. Thus the importance of ritual cleansing, emptying ourselves of the emotional weight we carry into each situation as it arises, and starting over, here/now, with a fresh start free from the dregs of all of our yesterdays, and abounding with the enthusiasm and curiousity of a Carolina Wren on its first excursion from the nest, going at each moment in a "What's this? What's this? What's this?..." kind of way. Seeing how many times we can be surprised and pleased in a day.
