If you've just had the most perfect day, would you retrace your steps, do it all again in the exact same order, just to experience another perfect day? If you did retrace your steps, would the day still be perfect? Or would expectation ruin it? Was the day perfect in the first place because you had no expectations on it? In such case, could you ever have that day back? If you did nevertheless retrace your steps and things turned out not quite as perfect the second time around, would it ruin the memory? Are things better left when they are at their best. What if you only know that things were at their best, by the time it is no longer so? If you don't go on to find out, how will you ever know? On the other hand, do you always have to know how the story ends? Is there not some beauty in leaving it after "once upon a time..."?
No, I'm not stoned!
