Saturday's blog post was inspired by hearing the following song, Regina Spektor's 'Eet,' which is about a mythical key on a typewriter that allows you to overtype words on page like we wish we could events in our lives.
The mythical key allowed one to backspace, overtyping previous events with new ones, or to simply block them out, leaving a black smudge, but without the words to form a memory or, more importantly, a lesson.
It's like forgetting the words to your favorite songAs attractive as forgetting or erasing sounds sometimes (and I do love the song), your memory will still be there in some way. Don't try to erase it; learn from it, and move on.
You can't believe it
You were always singing along
It was so easy and the words so sweet
You can't remember
You try to move your feet
Instead, focus on the other things in life, like your own endless sheet of paper, and the other keys on your keyboard.
