"Memories are as old books. Contained within are wonders, cherished experiences, sadness, fears lived out, all that has formed who we are. From time to time we pull one out to remember; we smile, a quiet laugh, eyes closed remembering...then we lovingly and gently place it back in its place. Others we touch almost as the flame, knowing it must be left in place, fearing to experience again that held within the pages. " (D Kellough)
