The Persistence of Memory
I woke up feeling sad this morning, puzzled over why, and then realized that twenty years ago today, one of my college roommates killed herself.
Our bodies remember these things even when our minds aren't conscious of them.
Rest in peace, Sumi. I hope you know now how much everyone here loved and valued and admired you, and how much we still mourn your final, irrevocable decision.
