A Little Something About Memories

I’ve just finished watching the brilliant Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I’m a big Jim Carrey fan and he’s constantly reminding me why in films like this. It’s definitely one of those movies that leaves you thinking about all sorts of things, and if you haven’t seen it, you should. But, if you’re going to, I would certainly suggest maybe not reading this for fear of a spoiling it for you. It centres around a young man and woman that each clear their memories of each other because of her unhappiness and his anger that she did hers. All is well until he’s going through each memory before it’s erased and he realises that he doesn’t want them erased, and this got me thinking – Why would anyone want to erase a memory like that… Or any memory at all?

I’m glad I didn’t try write and post on Saturday when I was so angry, because I would’ve probably been mean and brutal to the parties involved, but DTradegy cleared that up for me.  So I’m not going to be childish about this.  I’m going to tell the truth, because that’s what I do. Through my medium-crisis breakdown a couple of weeks ago, I spoke about ending things...
