Sometimes a series of names pop up in the head.
Names which are attached exclusively to people from the past.
Friends of friends
And random encounters
They’ve always been locked somewhere in the brain, but sometimes these names leak out.
Maybe whilst walking past where they once lived.
Maybe when stumbling across old photos.
Or even through playing an old game.
The names attached to people are also attached to memories.
Of course everyone experiences this.
Perhaps you’ll wonder what they’re doing now.
Or how you haven’t had a chance to see them in a few weeks. Make that years.
But if you’re like me, you’ll also wonder this:
How come you’re still stuck in the same place?
Why do you still live here?
Why did you never leave?
