As you all know, June 14th was a date burned in my memory, one I hate remembering, but, in a way, don't ever want to forget.
As you also know, it was the most prominent date on the calendar, if only to my eyes.
I sort of fixed that today. We have a white board/wipe off calendar on our refrigerator. It's kind of cool - each week is a separate piece, so, at the end of that week, you erase everything and move it to the bottom, move the other pieces up, and you basically have a rolling calendar.
This morning, I was updating some events in the coming weeks and, of course, yesterday, June 14th kept pulling my eye back. Nothing was written there except for the date, but, I couldn't stop looking at it. So, in an act of internal defiance, I erased the 14! Yep, just completely erased it, leaving a dateless day! And, you know what, I laughed at my arrogance at thinking I could obliterate a whole day, even if it was only on my refrigerator, but, more importantly, it felt great! What power!!
Even now, sitting on my couch, looking towards the kitchen, I can see the calendar, but, there's no 14 glaring back at me!! It's been wiped away!
Makes you wonder what it would be like if our brains worked like white boards, hmmm...
