I was told this week that “tears are memories on the move”. I thought that was a lovely way to describe our tears. People I love are hurting now. I thought this concept could offer some solace…moving memories. The idea of sorrow moving through us by our tears—a biological, physiological and emotional response gives our tears the weight they deserve.
I shot these images and realized that I was zeroing in on the beauty of the temporal quality of a droplet. A droplet, like a tear is living but won’t be forever. They are entirely necessary in the here and now when they flow…memories on the move. Memories on the move.
