Reflections of Past



At times I reflect upon the past as most do, we go through are writings, drawings among others items, perhaps a glimpse in the mirror and ponder if we still feel the same..

I wrote this back in 1998, after re-reading it -I still feel the same just with older eyes, more wrinkles, hair growing in gray especially my beard.


Sometimes the things we hold onto can be a blessing.

A story about this one is even though I wrote it back in 98 it  helped me while attending college.  I was taking an advanced english course, my Professor at the time was Dr. Lisa Shuchter, this would have been around 2007 somewhere. I emailed this writing to her and to my astonishment, I was informed I passed the class for the term with an A.

A portion of the reply:

“Michael, you must be really stressed out. Don’t
worry about our class; you have an A for the term.
Good luck with your phone interview tomorrow morning.
Hope all goes well, Lisa”


The actual writing was published in one of the local papers,  May of 1998.

  1. Hello Michael,

    It’s sometimes nice to look back, it helps us appreciate the present and become hopeful for the future.

    I recently found a letter that I wrote to myself in 2009, I was so amused by how different I am now, how much more certain of myself I’ve become and how I have “found” myself.

    Indeed, “Sometimes the things we hold onto can be a blessing.”

    I enjoyed reading this well-written post. Have a lovely weekend. 🙂
