Who are you?

It is funny how the human memory works. Most humans remember feelings smells and tactile sense associated with feelings they have in moments. Let me try to unwind my last sentence a little. The smell of vanilla will make most people think of sun block and sunblock makes most people remember summer days. Days spent in our youth on a trampoline or in the back yard trying to sneak a peak at the neighborhood girls and women sun bathing.  Maybe we will remember trips to the beach with our friends and families. Getting baked and burned by the sun and loving every minute of it, but see, it is the smell then the feel and then the moment. We do not simply, (barring an indivual who poses an eidetic memory) recall any situation. We recall parts and feelings that are associated with moments.

Some philosophers believe that a person is a product of their memories.  I am not sure if this is entirely accurate but in case it is I encourage you to live every moment to the fullest and with the most compassion and passion you can muster.

I will try and do the same.

peace
