"You people always hold onto old identities, old faces and masks, long after they've served their purpose.But you've got to learn to throw things away eventually. "

The above is a comment left by Anonymous in response to my previous post.

I just felt that Anonymous deserved a response.

You people... I don't know what you mean by "you people." People who love and lose? People who are trying to recover from that loss? People who have not yet the ability to release things that were once important to them, immediately to the wind?

You're right... I am one of those people. I am someone who is affected by the past, because the past molds me. It molds me, changes me, makes me think and rethink, makes me who I am. But it doesn't own me. In this case, it consumes me to a point... but not entirely.

*shrugs*

I don't know. I do agree that people need to learn to let go. Myself, included. If you read back, I admit that it is something that I'll probably need to learn to do. Unfortunately, I am not yet so enlightened that I have no attachments to anything transient.

Hence, title: UNENLIGHTENED and subtitle: The Tale of One Searching for Their Own Path (more or less).

以上です。

Oh... and just for kicks. Here's a picture of Kira.

I like the stars. It's the illusion of permanence, I think. I mean, they're always flaring up and caving in and going out. But from here, I can pretend. I can pretend that things last. I can pretend that lives last longer than moments.
Gods come, and gods go. Mortals flicker and flash and fade. Worlds don't last; and stars and galaxies are transient, fleeting things that twinkle like fireflies and vanish into cold and dust.

But I can pretend.
