A memory can live all alone and with passage of time, it can be forgotten… but “it” still exists, even though it is no longer acknowledged. Our ability to forget might be a survival skill where we live with the illusion that something did not happen….but there is always that place where the forgotten memories live. They exist as if written in stone, even if we choose to not remember. On occasion, I tread in this strange land of memory and surprise myself with what I have left behind. A certain smell, a sight of a grin with decaying teeth, or a note played on a piano can suddenly find that place in each of us, like a key unlocking an ancient door. I am not surprised at the unpleasant things I have left there but I am perplexed as to all the good things that were left along with the bad. Perhaps I hid them there for safekeeping.
