Memory is a funny thing: you can never forget what you wish never to remember, but what you most need and want never to forget is the first thing to vanish. This blog is something of a memory-keeper.
I, for one, have a difficult time keeping life in perspective. We live in a world that is simultaneously so many different realities that most of the time (for me at least) it's hard to remember the concerns and struggles of people living in what seems to be an entirely different world from the one I'm in. And so, if I am to keep some perspective, these memories are what I dare not forget.
