Memory is not unlike a photograph with multiple exposures. One event it layered on top of another, so that it is impossible to distinguish between the details of the two. The older we get, the more multiple exposure memories we have. Temporal relationships become elastic. As the years progress and we experience more and more, the mini narratives that make up our lives are distorted, corrupted, so that every one of us is left with a false history, a self-created fiction about the lives we have led.
