As I get back into the spark lifestyle, I find music and lyrics are frequent associations with events of my life. Today as I ate breakfast and reviewed my weekend strengths and pitfalls, I found myself thinking of Sinead Oconner's song about divorce.
I can remember many declarations of last(as in "that's the last...), and I don't necessarily like that thread of thought. Still it helps to look at last in the context of an "era" and not a specific behavior (in case that behavior recurs, I don't want to spin out of whoops-control).
So this is the last day of my engagement with a way of thinking about myself. I am divorcing that part of me, and tonight, I sign the papers. It will be done, and finally that part of my life is over.
