A Fresh Start

That would usually mean leaving behind everything of the past, and starting with a zero, as Tracy Chapman says.

One might say it’s a rejection of all that exists, leaving it all behind, and seeking all that is new, better, and preferred. But even in this fresh start, there is always the presence of the old, even if it is as just a building block, from which you take flight. You don’t just drop everything.

Or, there is no new thing in a fresh start, it’s just looking at the old in a different way; in a way that offers a different perspective to serve a different purpose.

A fresh view, perhaps, rather than a fresh start.

  1. I don’t know how TC is and I am not up to finding out right now.
    I am, however, reminded of this term, ‘unlearning’ that I have always wanted to write about. Your post reminds me of my own thoughts. I believe there is no such thing as that. One can only learn that we were ‘wrong’, so to speak, and replace it with new things. We can not erase learning, as the term seems to convey.
    So yes. Here’s wishing you a fresh start, today and every day, my dear brother.
