He is riding an old bike. She is browsing pictures on a computer. Then she abruptly presses Delete.
I think about consequences. I think about consequences when I see people acting crazy in moments of hardship. I am sure that everybody has thrown stuff away only to regret it deeply afterwards. We try to erase the memories that hurt. At times it’s easy to forget; at others coincidence confuses and puzzles us. Nothing goes to waste in nature, they say. Where, then, are all the moments we choose to delete? It’s a tricky question, let’s admit it.
I myself delete and throw things in the bin: dark thoughts and bad moments, empty bottles, boring people and dull stories, piles of paper with useless scribble, relationships, apple cores and ashtrays brimming over with stubs…
Where do all the useless memories go? Are they deleted without a trace? Or maybe somebody can play with them? Why do we people remember some things and others – not? Is it a game of fate? Is it a system failure? Maybe.
