"Some memories are better left alone..."

Left alone by not bringing them up in
conversation? Certainly. I was told by my
father never to sing or even hum Danny Boy
around my mother. The song reminded her of
losing her baby brother, Abe, in WWII.
That sort of self-editing, we can manage.
As for memories shifting their perfumed oils
between the conscious and subconscious? In
that instance, it's more like, "Some memories
won't leave us alone..." That's where dreams,
meditation and writing perform their magic
resolutions.
