All the history we need

January 22, 2018

The singer on radio sang, ‘You and me got a whole lotta history’ and I heard it follow ‘we can let it go, then make some more, n live forever.’ Maybe I heard it wrong, but if that were true and our histories are more about all the negative baggage we carry, leaving us desperate trying to escape from it, then this one’s for us: All the history we ever need is the history of the future. It’s what will add up for the future. It’s what will defend us in time, what will grow out of what we’ve sown, what will bring back dividends along with what we invested. It’s the history we intentionally create, save and redeem. It’s all the history we need. If we don’t have much of that kind yet, then it’s the right time to begin creating it.
