MEMORY

Human beings are fascinating. They will often forget where they put their keys five minutes ago. But if you have wronged them, they will often be able to recollect, with great precision, an incident from many years ago.

…………………

What I imagine is the future to come is, in many instances, merely a regurgitation of the past. Hence, the future is an opportunity to refresh the past; to right and re-right it. Or, merely, to relive and repeat it. But with added emphasis. As every repeat emphasizes and strengthens all previous repeats.

…………………

You control your memory, ultimately. If you don’t like the movie that you are watching in your head, pick another one. If you don’t like the audio, pick another one. If you want love and joy and happiness and fulfilment in your life, play those videos.
