"Our memories only belong to us in the way that we remember them, tinted with the moment, shadows cast in time’s sweetly bitter light. Depending how close we stand, they are stretched and ill-defined, dissolving into the darkness of distance, or small, tight, sharp edged, black pools around our feet, and any of the shades that fall in between. The past is gone forever as it was, replaced now by what we wish is."
A pleurant statue in Montparnasse Cemetery, Paris. Pleurant (French) or "weeper" statues represent the eternal grief at the loss of a loved one.
