we remember so we can find again.
so if we don’t need to find something again because we know there will always be more, then we don’t need to remember.
but how can we know that there will be more?
that, too, we need memory for. by remembering that there were other moments than the present one, we free ourselves of an unduly attachment to the now.
this here right now is good, but i don’t need to hold onto it anxiously, because i’ve allowed other moments to leave a trace.
my memories orient me.
