The disastrous behaviour of the memory (Click the photo to enlarge)

December 25, 2012

The disastrous behaviour of the memory (Click the photo to enlarge).

Not usually a reblogger–probably a fault of mine–but this had me thinking hard about any number of events in my life and how productive it is to rely on them as measures of how I feel about the people involved now.

I commented that a version of what the picture describes can happen with good memories as well. We can limit ourselves by relying too much on things we’ve enjoyed in the past, thus preventing us from seeking truly novel experiences.

Speaking of novels, I need to get back to my current one–which may touch on these themes. It was already heading in that direction.

Merry Christmas, all!
