Sometimes, sitting alone, we can suddenly remember things that have not been remembered for a long time.
Weird things bring it on like a smell, sound, or a stray thought about something related.
It can be a happy memory or a sad one.
There can be lost voices in our lives who suddenly break through and speak to you again. Or, a fleeting recollection of hair across someone’s eye, a favourite childhood meal, someone’s embrace.
In that one moment the memory hits you with its intensity. You hear, smell, taste, touch it/him/her/them and your eyes well, hairs tingle and you want to go back there so strongly or forget again so urgently………..
Sometimes, remembering is bitter sweet.
