Poem Memories are precious by Tom Stodulka 2 February 2018
It was my friend's summer house.
Now just a vacant block awaiting another Gold Coast high rise.
The memories of childhood just come flooding back.
So many memories- the good ones, the bad ones.
We all have them.
The good ones hopefully remain despite time passing,
Passing us all by.
Change is a constant. It is the reality of life.
Like time and the tide;
It waits for no-one.
The memories are precious,
Keep them close
As the years are not always kind.
Age and circumstances are factors affecting us all.
Rich and poor and all those in between.
Be kind to yourselves
Know yourselves better
Don't judge others too harshly.
Keep a smile for those around you,
Even the not so good.
Those undeserving can often respond well.
Believe in yourself.
Try to forgive, even forget.
The bad thoughts and bad memories may need to be put aside,
As they become dead weights and prevent you from moving forward.
They can prevent the positive occurring.
They hold you in the negative.
Enjoy the happy memories.
May there be many and may they always be there to help your coping skills.
Is mediation its own domain? To enter the world of mediation, I always encourage new mediators to take off one's legal and social science hats.
