Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Would life be easier if we could erase memories... people, events, and places... that we would want to forget? In this movie, a procedure called Lacuna was suppose to do just that. Joel (Jim Carrey) and Clementine (Kate Winslet) tried to erase each other from their memories when cracks started showing in their relationship. But somehow while under the procedure, Joel found a way to sneak several memories in other parts of his brain. I guess, no matter how much his mind would want to forget... his heart won't let him.

My friends know I hate regrets and I never regretted anything I did or didn't do (I know some people hate this about me) because there's no one else to blame for those decisions except myself. But, I do have several memories I'd like to forget. Just to ease the sadness... or embarrassment whenever I remember.

I wonder how many people would erase me from their memory if they could... and I also wonder how much of my life's painful or lonely experiences I would want to forget...

My dearest Mericon,

Memories past ...
Memories present ...

Let all that remain be
memories that we create
as we move forward ...
together.

I love you ...
as I always have.

Yours forever,
Martin
