Why the best souvenirs reside in the heart



You might be wondering about what I mean with the heading “Why the best souvenirs reside in the heart”. Possibly I am implying the knick-knacks often hawked near popular tourist attractions are less valuable than the memories we create merely by being there.

Alternatively, I might be attempting to explain with the statement “Why the best souvenirs reside in the heart” that to truly reconnect at a later date with a pleasant event or visit, for example, the most important ‘souvenirs’ are those ‘purchased’ by actually living the moment fully at the time of its occurrence.

By being present we avoid that common feeling of having done something, seen something or someone, yet can remember nothing about it. Moving through the day as if on autopilot is the opposite of being present and therefore this is why the best souvenirs reside in the heart.

The notion of a lovely thrilling encounter with reality, or a glimpsing through the crack of illusion if you prefer, is something for which no t-shirts are sold nor fridge magnets exist. Nevertheless, such experiences do occur and accordingly is why the best souvenirs reside in the heart.

Kindest regards.
