A Perspective on Loss

I’m reminded of a talk by Alan Watts I heard recently about the apparent paradox between letting go and living in each moment, versus enjoying our lives so richly that they’re burned into our memories and part of us. He added that it’s like riding a bicycle-to tip fully either way ends the ride! So, on we pedal feeling any loss of the past while still savoring each new moment.
I sometimes find myself bouncing between joy and sadness when I see glorious sunsets or sunrises. They’re so thrillingly beautiful! Yay! I’ll never see another one like that. Wah!
Still, I look forward to the next beautiful one.
