Memory…


Last week, I saw Eve’s Bayou again, a film I have not seen in years. As much as I love the entire movie, the monologue at the end always stands out most to me because she speaks on how perspective can influence memory, the past and truth.

“Like others before me I have the gift of sight. But the truth changes color depending on the light. Tomorrow can be clearer then yesterday, Memory is a selection of images. Some elusive, others printed indelibly on the brain. Each image is like a thread. Each thread woven together to make a tapestry of intricate texture and the tapestry tells a story and the story is our past.” – Eve
