Tricks of Time

It's incredible how some things will stay with us, seared into our minds forever, while other things, perhaps those which we would rather recall, slip away from us. And yet, we are not to blame; the mind will always store what it knows to be the most important things for us as part of the bigger picture, disregarding all those other things we thought we ought to remember, but are in fact trivial.

So while some things will rot and crumble, putrefying in the niches of time, we cannot wish that we remembered them, for there are other things we ought to be looking forward to. Even if sometimes we are left to cast our eyes to the horizon in wistfulness, wishing to remember that which we have forgotten.
