~Inspired by Beloved Ruby
This exquisite painting entitled ‘Memories’ by Beloved Ruby is reminiscent of sadness.
The majority of us suppress sad memories, preserving them safely in dark corners of our minds until such a time that a trigger forces us to confront them again. Despite the secure hiding place, these memories are ‘rarely forgotten’.
On the other hand, one must venture onto the hard drive of our PC, our i-devices or our phones to access the happy snaps that reflect our finer moments, in order to ‘remember them.’
Perhaps if we shared the darker moments with more ease, and dug them out of their hiding spot, they would become more readily accessible, and more readily forgotten!
What a funny species we are.
