On my walk this morning, I listened to Judy Collins’ Both Sides Now. She sings about not knowing clouds, love or life at all. She sings about life’s illusions is what she recalls. I began thinking about my life and all of the memories I’ve created over the past 57 yrs. I wonder, could my memories be just illusions? How much of the content of those memories is real? Then I began wondering how much of my current reality is just an illusion? What is the reality of my relationships, my self perception, my perception of others, my perception of situations and on and on and on?
So for today, I think I’ll live in the illusion of this glorious summer day in new england and create more wonderful memories that I’ll look back on one day. Of course, how I remember this day just may possibly be all an illusion….
