“I really am just trying to tell stories. But stories are often grounded in larger events and themes. They don’t have to be – there’s a big literature of trailer-park, kitchen-table fiction that’s just about goings-on in the lives of ordinary people.“

~ Neal Stephenson

recollection

 

“Your memory is a monster; you forget—it doesn’t. It simply files things away. It keeps things for you, or hides things from you—and summons them to your recall with will of its own. You think you have a memory; but it has you!”

~ John Irving, A Prayer for Owen Meany
