Significance

Significance, life is a desperate search for significance

Sometimes we try to make things significant by

Doing them again and again

Which doesn’t work

Things that don’t happen often

Are more likely to be significant

Like getting married

Or doing acid

Or falling on your ass and bruising yourself

Or meeting the one you love for the first time

You think about those events more than others

They stand in memory like sentinels

Foundational parts of your essence

Memory is what makes us who we are

Without memory we’re totally screwed
