““A moment lasts all of a second, but the memory lives on forever.” ANONYMOUS
Browsing through a magazine while I wended my way workward this morning, This thought struck me and I began to think.
When we write stories base don memory, the stOries usually are structured sequentially however memory does not come back to us as it happened.
Life is a rich and varied tapestry, and something acts as a spotlight on a section and brings back to us the richness or senses and the waft of what was. This walks with us for a while, and then fades as the everyday and the grist of future memories is lived through and around us as we walk through each moment of life.
““Life is all memory, except for the one present moment that goes by you so quickly you hardly catch it going” TENNESSEE WILLIAMS.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
Edward de Bono states: “A memory is what is left when something happens and does not completely not happen.” Perhaps there is some truth in this. perhaps we amass experience but the lesson has to percolate before we fully take this in?
