“In every parting there is an image of death”- George Elliot
This is a small collection of remnants that reveal subtle traces of one’s conflicting desire to remember and to forget. If life is a process towards death, it is also a process of erasure, that one slowly effaces his/her name from the weights of every hope and deepest regret. The remains are artifacts of emotions without being. The border between reminiscence and amnesia is never so clear.
I dedicate this essay to my family which I hope I will never remember to forget.
