The Past is Never Dead

One of the reasons I love old crumbling artifacts and architecture, worn stones and yellowed pages, is they remind me that the past is never dead, as the Faulkner quote goes. Even when they’re dead, they aren’t past but continue to haunt. Old memories resurface. Archaeologists dig up something new. Forgotten treasures are lost and found. People from our past pop up welcome or unwelcome. No matter how hard we try to scrub the Internet clean, it retains its secrets ready to be hacked and revealed. For better or worse, we might as well accept it.
