Soulful reflections for Tucson, jumping off from “Trouble Comin Every Day” by the Mothers of Invention to set the theme: How short our memories can be … haven't we gone through agony like this before? (Yeah, we have, with dismaying frequency -- see the Wiki links at http://bit.ly/ctx0a0)
Or is it like the water coursing past us in a river -- it's never the same river, and so it's never the same lesson we learn.
And as it is with our public distress, so it is with the personal: there's lessons we have to keep learning -- not only because our memories are so short, but because the person with the memory keeps changing even if the memory lingers. So you find yourself thinking: Have I STILL not learned that lesson? Well, it was a younger you that got schooled first time around… but you're an older version of that person now and perhaps you need to learn that lesson all over again. Aretha, Yvette, Fergie, Cheryl, Mark Rae: they're in the mix to help you with that.
