Memories, whether preserved or suppressed, stay in our bodies and leave behind marks. As we physically change our memories change with us. Memories can be the remnants of a time gone by, a place, a person or an occurrence. Reminiscing about good times; trying to make sense of blurry occurrences gone by in an intoxicated state; wanting to latch onto the memory or trying to run away from it.
