Whenever anyone thinks of erase it reminds them of clearing off the blackboards in school. In today’s schools all the children have either a tablet or a laptop. In the old “Leave it to Beaver” shows, he would stay after school to wipe down the blackboard as he had a crush on his teacher, Miss Canfield. Now, however, when people hear the word erase their thoughts drift off to events or situations in their lives they wish they could erase. We cannot erase the past. It is fixed. We can, however, resolve past issues to live a happier life now. Anyone who has committed a crime would love to wipe away their wrong doings or time in jail or prison. There are individuals who do wipe the slate clean with a new identity so they can start fresh. However, it always catches up with them unless they have the money for plastic surgery to change their appearance. Sadly, though, they usually end up returning to their old ways and life of crime so it ends up being a waste. The whole point is to learn how to let go of the past. We all have events we truly wish to forget. My ethnicity tends to bury the past so it cannot resurface. Unfortunately it usually does in one way or another. It is better to make peace with your past so you can move forward. Of course, it is easier said than done. As we age many memories return particularly of people who have passed. I actually work with a few people who cannot let go of the past. The former manager passed away in 2017. Yet, there are a few people who cannot let go of everything he did wrong, how much they disliked him, etc. I do not care. He is gone and never returning. Everything has changed yet they just cannot stop. In the Good Gus series the children did erase the blackboard at school. The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
