I have always been so absent and scattered minded.  I wonder when I will become totally vacant minded.  What remains in my memory are fragments of images, vague and elusive, buried deep in strata of my mind.  All I hear and see are cloudy reveries, blurry faces and murky voices.    Could it have anything to do with the places I have lived which scatter all over the world?  Could it be because the constant changes throughout my life that allow nothing to stay still in my mind?  I have attended four primary schools and two junior high schools.  Maybe the many people I encountered cause my struggle with faces and names.  On the other hand, could it be because people are all passersby in my life, too insignificant to capture my attention?  When I thought of those who left a dent in my memory in my youth, I can only think of very few.  My best girlfriend in first grade, a boy in my 5th grade class who was moving to the US about the same time I was moving abroad, two girls from my 7th grade class and three boys from my 9th grade class.  How did I remember those three boys?  I have to confess that I have always been too naïve to fall in love.  It was not because I was going through puberty but because of their nicknames. 

 

Whatever damages time might have brought to my memory, the future seems vivid.  I have finally found a way to fight against it.  Whatever future turns into past, in my verse, my memory perpetuates.

  • It's funny how you don't remember people who remembers you. Or remembering what seem to be insignificant moments. For me, it was that small cup of 小美冰淇淋 my dad bought for us to share, or the warm and secure feeling of riding on nanny's back, or the smell and stain of grass when I pulled them from the ground.

    Maybe we all remember what we choose to remember. But there may be no science behind what we choose to remember.
  • Yeah, I can remember the first time my dad brought us to the theatre to watch a movie. It was a movie about vampires. It might be the movie about Dracula but I couldn't remember. I thought that I might be 4th grade then. I was really scared so most of the time, I was looking down on my knees. What I remembered was my ice cream and the 2 holes that the vampires left on each of the victims. I remembered the ice cream because that was the first time my dad gave us a treat. :)
