Proust: The Past

“Remembrance of Things Past”
Apr 16th Part #94


“And so it is with our own past. It is a labour in vain to attempt to recapture it: all the efforts of our intellect must prove futile. The past is hidden somewhere outside the realm, beyond the reach of intellect, in some material object (in the sensation which that material object will give us) of which we have no inkling. And it depends on chance whether or not we come upon this object before we ourselves must die.” ― Marcel Proust, Swann’s Way

    • Thank you. Your words are supportive and kind. I do hope when you feel the urge you will comment. Being eclectic in what captures my attention leads to unexpected wonders. Writing poems & creating art & sharing the art from other artists in most fields is extremely important to me. I would say – expect the unexpected & note the unexpected is often a variation on the expected – just surprising. You made my night.
