• things, objeects, memories – we try to immortalise them
  • try to gloss thema nd coat them with fondness but when the memories are destroyed by an act or a death, the memories are tarnished
  • yet by death we try to make an idol of someone, only telling the good stories/memories
  • gift wrapping each moment and shielding others that don’t look so beautiful
  • I remember some not so good stories but they are few
  • my mind plays tricks on me and beautiful moments and photos can sometimes be distorted or ruined by acts that came after
