Look at a photograph you have not seen in over 10 years. Close your eyes and try to reimagine the moment. Write about what you have forgotten. (Written in Action Scores for Healing)
Lately, I have found a habit of bringing back photos from my family home in New York, where archives of my childhood are stored. Many of these I have unconsciously forgotten, perhaps in an effort to assimilate with the American land I grew up in, perhaps because I did not know that my upbringing was a story worth telling rather than concealing, I now come back to them and reconcile with how these documents are a reflection of who I am now.
