Tis in my memory locked, And you yourself shall keep the key of it.

The safest way
To keep a memory clear, to keep it as it was, not what you make it
But as you remember it –
Would be to lock it away and forget
You ever had it.
Every time we revisit a memory
We create it anew
So that the next time we remember it
We remember the memory.
This is how the brain stores what it knows. This is the science
Of remembering – the synaptic reinforcement of one connection to another. I was wearing a dark blue dress
No, it was more a purply blue.
I was wearing a purply blue dress that day.
I remember. I was wearing a purple dress.
Remember?
