How To Remember

Memories are data points in our minds. When we bring a set together we create a narrative, a memory map. With smells, colors, sounds we can bring up joy or comfort. Maybe the scent of the ocean on a hot day, the colors of the wet and dry sands, the sound of the wind in the palm fronds. I wish I could be in Florida now, with someone I love who is so sad. But Covid-19 keeps us all at a distance, unable to travel.
A memory map is an anchor, a treasure hunt, and shows the paths of the days we spent together.
