The Remnants of Us

We leave something of ourselves behind when we leave a place, we stay there, even though we go away. And there are things in us that we can find again only by going back there ~ Pascal Mercier

We spend a lifetime making memories and we leave a little of ourselves in each memory we make.Β Β A part of us remains with our family, friends, lovers, even passing strangers. We may forget some of these memories but the people we make them with very seldom, if ever, forget. So we should try to make our life stories memorable in the best possible way.

Fragments of our past, like tea leaves in the bottom of a teacup, remain behind to tell a story.Β  Mostly good ones but some, perhaps, can leave a bad taste in one’s mouth.Β Try not to be someone’s bad memory.
