Preservation of thoughts and feelings is hard
Keeping the tradition while
Keeping up with the Jones’
Maintain faith in the history of life
When life’s are ending, memories forgotten
Does pain endure?
How about joy?
How does one package the sounds of three thousand people trying to sleep
People falling in love
People enduring
quote normal life unquote
Instead we keep copies of script
Pictures of people in places that are meant to invoke feelings of sameness or difference
But always missing the real point of feeling
what it felt like
