Read this thought provoking post from a favourite blog of mine. It certainly made me wonder...are memories, ghosts?
Some are painful, some are heartwarming, some you would rather forget, some you never want to fade. And yet, face them we must and often they taint our perception of situations past - we either improve or play down the ultimate result, depending upon how we want to be remembered when retelling our memories to others.
I have my own theory regarding actual ghosts - and they don't have white sheets and chains (well, not always). But that's for another time.
Memories are ghosts that inhabit our mind and make us what we are.
