“The Forgetting-Project” / A Memorable Fancy #316

     I did something so awful once, a long time ago, that I want to un-remember it, to un-know it. I went to a psychiatrist last year. He told me to face up to what happened; work through the memory; own it. Repression, he said, is not what I should be doing. But repression is what I’m looking for. The truth isn’t what I want. I don’t need to remember what I did; I’ve remembered that already, time after time. I can’t get it out of my head. Now I just want to remember something else, anything else, something fresh and innocent. A baseball game, maybe.

     There’s another problem, though. A few others still remember what I did all those years ago. While I still recall their names I will have to deal with them. Then I can get on with my forgetting-project.
