SoCS–Past Recollections


Welcome to Stream of Consciousness Saturday!  Our prompt for this week from Linda, A Life in Progress, is “memory.”


Memories come to me like snatches of old black and white movies replaying in my mind.  Interestingly, when I visit some of those memories from long ago, I find the edges are hazy and no longer as clear; as compared to when I was living through the event.  Time seems to shadow those memories distorting and changing the feelings inside my heart.  Happiness and pain merge into foggy greyness.  Passions cool to simmer in the ancient history of my soul.

  1. I like the idea of memories as black-and-white movies playing. I find that my memories are also look like the old Polaroids in photo albums, with those corners holding them in.

  2. Wonderful similes, Colleen. I love what you did with this prompt. 😀

  3. Great description of memories! I especially liked “foggy greyness” — such a good term! I enjoyed your post. 🙂
