Moment #11497 – Discarded
A broken TV lying face down next to a crate full of corroded battery cells. They have been left out carelessly and without any apparent order on the side of the street where I live. The remnants of once new technology that is now old, unused, and unwanted.
It seems ironic that it is so much easier to leave behind material things than it is to discard the ethereal components of our own psyche. But in order to make way for the new and begin a process of internal change, it is necessary to first abandon those parts of the self which are no longer useful or needed. A deceptively simple sounding concept which is at the same time infinitely difficult to put into practice.
