Perhaps learning to live finally would mean learning to live in the present, presently, without forgetting the past. We have said it before, no doubt: learning to live with the ghost, without letting it interfere in our enjoyment of the present moment.

And then, j'accepte, one of my greatest fears, vanishing into the air, like a dispersed cloud, like an evaporated dream, a trace of nothingness, a bad memory exorcised. Walking away, then, in silence.

Ghosts believe in other ghosts.
