Rubbing Away Reminders
The owl flies far and neigh, and on finds both beauty and sadness. This one is about that later thing. The owl saw this deliberate effort to rub off a memory, and these wise came to mind:
“Most things are forgotten over time. Even the war itself, the life-and-death struggle people went through is now like something from the distant past. We’re so caught up in our everyday lives that events of the past are no longer in orbit around our minds. There are just too many things we have to think about everyday, too many new things we have to learn. But still, no matter how much time passes, no matter what takes place in the interim, there are some things we can never assign to oblivion, memories we can never rub away. They remain with us forever, like a touchstone.”
― Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore
Until next time...
