My Rear-View Mirror

The rear view-mirror, you know that thing, part of the windshield of your vehicle that allows you to see behind you.

The rear view-mirror, you know that thing, part of the brain of your body that allows you to see behind you.

Amazon.com has many rear-view mirrors of different shapes, sizes; some for specific functions, but they all allow us to view what is behind us.

So true with our brain’s rear-view mirror, for example –

My posts, this blog is a trip of sorts in that I am moving forward, but at times looking back in my rear-view mirror.  With this trip I am taking you the readers with me and allowing you to see behind me in my rear-view mirror; my past life, my past events and my past experiences.

From a blog post by Chris Hale titled ‘Looking behind us . . . the history of the rear view mirror’, it discusses a couple of possible origins of the rear-view mirror and concludes with the following:

No matter where it gets it’s origin, it is rather amazing that a small peice of reflective glass can allow us to look behind us and know what surrounds us. As simple an idea as it is, I wish I had thought of it.

I am moving forward in life looking in my rear-view mirror and seeing my past surroundings that are moving out of my field of vision on this current day.  The past will never truly go away; some of it will be here posted on this blog for the future and some of it will be filed away in my memory and maybe never retrieved again.

But as I continue on this trip, I will never forget the origins of my rear-view mirror; my roots and my heritage.  These origins and my legacy will someday be in my son’s rear-view mirrors.
