THINGS I'VE BEEN PONDERING RECENTLY

  1. How do we mourn?
  2. Specifically, how do we mourn what was never really ours to begin with?
  3. Have we any right to grieve a loss that cannot be called ours?
  4. How, if it all, do I mourn the loss of childhood?
  5. Why does art move us?
  6. Does regret fuel our travels?
    I thought about this when visiting the Anne Frank house.
  7. Why does Anne's story move so many of us?
  8. How can we make peace with our past, or humanity's past, even if their choices were not our own?
  9. Do we all share a collective guilt?
