This evening, I was at a meeting in Edinburgh, around the are I spent a lot of time as a student. As I passed a shop, I instantly remembered walking to it the night after I moved into my flat in second year. I remembered the heavy rain that didn't let up at any point of the journey. I remembered peering through the rain and seeing the reflection of the street and traffic lights. I remembered that the song I was listening to on my MP3 player as I walked. And I remembered that despite the rain, I was in a good mood that night.
I enjoyed my trip down memory lane. I know that every time I remember it, I modify the memory. If I were to travel past that shop on a regular basis, the memory would soon fade or be morphed beyond what it currently is. I wish there was some way to preserve that memory.Go Top
