Tools to remember past...
Post date: Jun 6, 2012 8:33:52 PM
Recently, I wrote a post and a similar article that - to miss or remember something we don't need, just pics and videos. In fact, tiny and useless things from the past also do the same or sometimes even better. For example - old tickets, receipts, etc.
Last week I talked to someone from Zurich over the phone.
At my workplace, every next person comes from a different country. I have a habit of listening to so many accents… I classify them in cute (childish, soft) and not-so-cute (rough) accents. That can be a very individualistic view, but I find some accents really cute.
But when I was in this call from Zurich...
I realized that I haven't heard this accent (a Swiss-German speaking English) for quite some time.
This accent made me travel back in time when I was on my internship... I felt like sitting in a park near Zurich lake.. and suddenly the whole city flashed in my mind!
Lovely it was...
…we don't need anything to remember our past. If it is embedded in our memory, it will find ways to pull us back in time. :)
