It is not possible to go forward while looking back.
A photograph can be an instant of life captured for eternity that will never cease looking back at you.
Looking back isn't going to help you. Moving forward is the thing you have to do.
I have no regrets. I don't believe in looking back. What I am proudest of? Working really hard... and achieving as much as I could.
The past is a stronger influence in the South. But I think everywhere you have this sense that the world changes faster than you can accommodate yourself to. Looking back and seeing how you got where you are is a useful way to combat disorientation.
