I struggled with how to depict this week’s theme. Seriously, how do you show something that is impossible to measure or calculate?
But then I focused on the intangibility of the infinite and thought, memories are like that. Our daily experiences generate so many memories, that our brain employs several ways to encode, store and retrieve them.
This photo speaks of one of my clearest earliest memories of moving to London as a child. I remember my Dad taking me to see the Trafalgar Square lions; the sheer joy and challenge of clambering up and over them as I attempted to reach a pinnacle from where I could stand and survey the views.
It is an activity I have performed in both child and adulthood and the delight of watching others’ attempting the same feat is an equal joy. So, have you ever tried this?
“Memory is a part of the present. It builds us up inside; it knits our bones to our muscles and keeps our hearts pumping. It is memory that reminds our bodies to work, and memory that reminds our spirits to work too: it keeps us who we are.”
― Gregory Maguire, Son of a Witch
