What would you give to remember everything? I have this power. I absorb your memories: when you hear me, you relive them. A first dance. A wedding. The song that played when you got the big news. No other talent gives your life a soundtrack. I am Music. I mark time. 

from the Magic Strings of Frankie Presto by Mitch Albom.

  1. have you read funes the memorius – Borges? this post reminded me of that fabulously profound short story. Because he remembers everything, the world is different every second. A horse with it’s leg up one second is a different horse the next second when its leg is in a slightly different position. The whole world changes for him every moment – the burden of that; memory :)
