is it oblivion or absorption, emily dickinson asks, when we forget? when some new thought, feeling, or notion presents itself, we can't forget it or overlook it. when we have invited it in or agree to live in its company, maybe then it won't be such a preoccupation. it will be forgotten-not exiled into oblivion, but absorbed into being. ap, sub, faye, lara, and anyone else, i can not wait to here your answer to this thought.
