Standing On a Hill In New Zealand

A couple of years ago I was standing on a hill in New Zealand with twenty other photographers. It was early in the morning before dawn and everything was quiet, still and overwhelmingly beautiful. I had to pinched myself to ensure it wasn't a dream. Well, I made that last part up, my fingers were to cold to pinch anything, but I was pretty happy nonetheless.

Its great I have this image because it helps me remember. I wonder what it wold be like if I could remember everything with vivid clarity. I think it would be a double edged sword. Truth be told I'd, only I'd only want to remember the good things, but if I had that memory I might not have a choice. Maybe that's why we are the way we are. Our memories fade so we have a chance to move on, start new, live another day.

I've heard that when we die we have a life review. That we see everything we've done that affects other people. If that's true, then that will be one heck of a memory machine. Or, maybe that's how we remember when we don't have our aging brains getting in the way. Maybe our minds are really that good, it's an incredible idea. I think it's true, we have hints of it throughout our lives and society.


Now if I could only learn how to tap in to my unlimited memory, I could tell you what I had for dinner last night and, I could remember my e-mail password. I had one more point to make but I seem to have forgotten what it was.

Or, maybe that's how we remember when we don't have our aging brains getting in the way. Maybe our minds are really that powerful, it's an amazing idea. I think it could be true, we have hints of it throughout our lives and society.
