About a Trinity in disguise
It is one of my beliefs that money is like sex: both commodities are
important but not essential. When someone once responded to this belief by
asking: "Then what IS essential?", I decided to turn to the best poet I
know, for an answer: Miss Emily Dickinson.
And among other, she came up with this little jewel, of which the first two
lines speak for themselves, I guess. Blossoms wither away all too quickly
and cakes will be stale after just a few hours. What carries an essence,
however, must last forever; should contribute to a timeless base. And thus
we arrive at the enigma, hidden in the last two lines. Miss Dickinson adds
to the riddle that life is, by telling us that Memory like Melody is It. It
here stands for pink Eternally and I wil have to say a few words about that
First let me reveal a little personal secret: I like to recite by heart
several of her poems. When I tried to do so from scratch with this little
one, I made the following mistake, I recited it as follows: Memory AND
Melody ARE pink Eternally.
So there I went, tricked by Miss Dickinsons genius!
So, YES, memory AND Melody ARE, but only if memory is melodious!
And then it will be pink Eternally. But what is it with that pink? It
stands for Faith, Love and Hope, is what I feel ...
