Before Now

Long ago shines in the memory. Glamorizing the past is tempting. Good and bad both hide there, but the good is easier to handle.

Realistic depictions are more beneficial. The past can be beautiful, but not in the polished, brilliant, way; the past is a gritty beauty. There are scars, lines and discolored patches. As much as one can love tracing those marvelous lines, exploring the scars and patches of the past, know that they were earned with pain and time.
