Emily Parnell — Hope springs eternal: Don’t give up on those dead horses (or ‘dead’ trees)

Have you ever tried to resurrect the dead? Revive a conversation that is over? Revisit a missed opportunity? Harp on a topic that’s been long since put-to-rest? Occasionally, there will be something I just can’t let go, and I find myself beating a dead horse. You can whack the heck out of those things, and nothing ever comes of it. Well, aside from annoyed family members who don’t want to hear any more of it. But never does history rewrite itself.
