“To most men experience is like the stern lights of a ship, which illuminate only the track it has passed.” the cynic Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772 – 1834) once wrote. O.K., usually we can analyze our mistakes only some days after, but not swimming in the water behind a large ship. Usually I’m sitting dry in my armchair with a paper blank and a pencil in my hands.

  1. Experience is life’s best teacher but not always life’s best companion, even in retrospect! Sometimes a lot more light is shed on those experiences that just from a steamer ship’s aft beam.


  2. I tend to keep my feet on dry land, too (I tend to sink better than I float).
    My eyes are another story, though – another beautiful image, F.T.!


  3. I’m not a swimmer, so I would rather be out of the water. As for experience – how does the saying go?…”I wish I knew then what I know now”.


  4. Anonymous

    Ditto to the above :-)


  5. Yep, I would rather be on it than in the ocean!


  6. Sheesh, imagine seeing the stern lights disappearing ass you thrash around in the water. Bitter! :)


Hearing from you makes my day!
