When you learn to understand Nature, it’s often short-sighted. Why did this happen? Because of that before it. Or this just happened, what next? Every now and then, you learn something akin to a life cycle, something from beginning to end, like birth to death. But even then, that’s just part of something bigger. What’s that bigger thing? And what’s the biggest thing, if one existed?
Definition: End of History Illusion, Paradox of Aging, Hieratic Scale
End of History Illusion
Misperception humans have that they won’t change much as a person (personality-wise) for the rest of their lives
Paradox of Aging
The fact that older people are happier despite declining health, independence, and so on
Doesn’t anybody check how these things appear on newsfeeds???
If your life story were a jigsaw puzzle, what would it look like?
I wrote a short poem in tanka format about a week ago. In it, I pondered if my life story were a jigsaw puzzle, what would it look like? Now, and what I hope it would look like at the end.
Today, I finally did that “mental exercise” that could also be good for a writing exercise. My answer is below, but if you want to try it yourself, I would suggest you not read further until after you have tried it yourself, so as not to be influenced by ideas. 🙂
I enjoyed the exercise, and I hope you will, too, if you decide to give it a try.
The poem will be on my poetry blog on November 2nd. I have a large back log of short poems so I am sharing one or two per day in chronological sequence among sequences of poems in common collections.
