REMNANTS

I moved a lot growing up, so people came in and out of my life with regularity making me a master at avoiding attachments. Adulthood brought stability allowing me to experience the richness of relationships that go beyond selfies and airbrushing. I’ve found our faces reveal bits and pieces of everything that has come before. There is no single occurrence or incident that defines us but an unconscious combination that reinterprets all we’ve gathered. We journey through life gathering bits and pieces that for some reason, resonate within. Feelings, phrases, colors, songs, and other people - they all leave their marks and lurk in the recesses of our minds. We have little control of the memories that stick or when they will resurface.
