The Zen of False Hope

Claremont, California, Canon Rebel XT, Lensbaby

We pretend that they live.  It's easy to think that way.  It's easy to idolize them.  It's easy to think that they have great characteristics that merit praise and even imitation.  We romantacize about them.  We think they were wiser than us.  We want to live like they did.  I wonder what they are thinking now that they are dead.
