Looking Over Your Shoulder

The mechanics of Life often seem such that decisions of the past never quite seem to remove them selves from ones consciousness.    As if they linger simply as a reminder of things to come or,  if your really Spartan,  to avoid.

I enjoy anecdotal metaphors that mirror life!  They seem to say what we can not read or, for the spoken words,  we can not see.   For instance,  Shakespeare’s “What’s past is prologue.”  Santayana’s “Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it.”  And , for the record,  my own “Lessons unlearned will resurface at the most inopportune moments and often when you’re least prepared to be reminded of your oversight!”
