do you carry a lot of guilt around with you?
the kind of minor guilt exemplified by, “oh, i wish i hadn’t eaten all of that cheesecake last night,” or “i didn’t get them a ___ for their _____, but everyone else in our circle of friends did.” <sigh>
is it easy for you to shrug it off or do you let it weigh on you like a younger brother who won’t leave you alone and is continually asking you, “why’d you do that?” (i can only imagine that that is the purpose of a younger brother as i am brotherless.)
i like my minor feelings of guilt ill-defined, perhaps even blurred, so the edges are smudged and the far distance–the part of the landscape of guilt where it fades away into the perceived horizon (you do set a horizon line for your guilt, don’t you?)–just like this photo of the coastline lacks detail and sharp edges.
