Deleted

 Sun shining over the clouds from a plane 

These photos… you are not physically in them and yet your presence still is there, beyond the frame. I am loathe to delete them, as if erasing them erases you, erases me. 

Tethered.

Can my memory ever be too full?

Yes.

It can.

  1. I think we all have tethers that bind us, sometimes in a great way, and other times in ways that bring pain and sadness. When the cluttered and tangled strings of our lives become overwhelming something has to go. I suppose better the ‘thing’ be gone than the memories, although we often have no choice in the matter.
    Great post to ponder over with its many and varied implications 🙂

  2. Great photo! I’ve been doing a bit of reading about memory – I used to laugh and tell people my brain is so full of trivial crap that when I learn something new, I have to eject something already in there. Turns out, that’s what happens for real! You end up overlaying new pathways over the old.

  3. Nop. Never too full. More synapses grow.
    And if you think of people long gone. I have pictures of my great-grandmother back in India, around 1860. She was about ten. A flicker of light. And then gone.
    Keep flickering.
    And take care of yourself.
