moments… glorious moments

from one moment to the next. count them individually, or count them collectively. but life can be broken down into moments. moments in time. and time can be all sorts of different things, and take you all sorts of different places.

dont underestimate them, dont overestimate them. take them for exactly what they are. ive always done my damndest to experience them to the fullest in the present, instead of trying to savor them for the future. which is an interesting line to draw. memories arent as important as the experience itself, and yet those memories are what get me to the next experience. life doesnt go on without the history of the life that precedes it. memories are necessary, but how important is the documentation of those memories? are these writings my documentation? am i being a hyprocrit? i think there is a different line of distinction but it is fuzzy at best and my ability to define it right now is minimal. one of the differences is that this is documentation post experience, post moment, so it has no effect on how i experienced that moment. if i stopped in the middle to write it all down, or take notes that would be valueing the memory over the present. when people stop to take pictures in the middle of a good time, that moment is no longer pure. the experience is forever changed by someones necessity to remember it. i value the pure experience of the moment far far more then i could ever value the memories of that moment in the future. but those two situations arent really as separate as i see them. experience is very much wrapped up in history, present, and future. experience is chaos theory. it is context. it is life.
