While it might seem a bit obvious (if terribly profound) at first, it might be fun to discuss,
to comment with some answers specific to your own life:

"
When you study your past...  does it help you predict your future?

Do you think of it as amusement?
Do you ever think of it as an act of atonement?
What do you use it for?

Consider your present, your now, the time you missed.

What have you lost?

"

- Thomas Pynchon (loosely paraphrased)
