“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

a fragment

 

“We’re so caught up in our everyday lives that events of the past, like ancient stars that have burned out, are no longer in orbit around our minds. There are just too many things we have to think about every day, too many new things we have to learn. New styles, new information, new technology, new terminology … 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
