Do you remember this?

I have expunged so much and so many from my recollection

When they come creeping in, it’s on ghost feet

Sometimes I welcome the newly remembered

Sometimes I dread the associations they bring me

Some memories amuse, others confuse, some

Simply disabuse me of my moral superiority, I

Have not served truth or justice, not always,

Just sometimes; glory is not mine to strut or savor,

Not always, just sometimes, Who were you? Who was I?

Can you know yourself and still be self-deluded?

Is self-knowledge sometimes a gateway to self-indulgence?

Does focusing on oneself equate to an ultimate solipsism?

When is being self-centered a form of meditation?


Pensive Propositions

The internet’s a connection,

The internet’s a collection,

But the news you get here

They’re hit or miss, dear

Some are theory, some are fact

Use your discretion, apply your tact

Some are true, many are false

Don’t be fooled, don’t be hoaxed

The internet’s a collection,

The internet’s a connection

No, wait, no one uses those anymore. People make notes in their Notepad, which is on a device in a virtual application of some sort or other for use on Android, Windows or Mac. This means that that chances that there is a transcript of proceedings or thoughts are minimal.

Of course, a transcript can be a printed version of a text so you can print out the Notepad and voilà, you have a transcript. After all, a transcript is a record of something originally presented in another medium.

I confess that, although I am a wild user of social media and a heavy duty blogger, I do use a pen or pencil as a prelim to my process. I don’t keep my handwritten transcripts– often even I have trouble figuring out what I meant to say– but I use them for guidance when I go to the laptop to type up my reflections.

Once upon a time, in the good old days, when you transcribed something, you were putting thought to paper. Or, I suppose, truly old school, you wrote it down on papyrus, and before that on the cave wall.
