The charm, one might say the genius, of memory is that it is choosy, chancy and temperamental; it rejects the edifying cathedral and indelibly photographs the small boy outside, chewing a hunk of melon in the dust.
No object is mysterious. The mystery is your eye.
When you love someone all your saved up wishes start coming out.
