Speaking of Memories and Cultural Roots
When you’re living in a place other than where you spent your childhood, memories remain buried deep in the subconscious. Then smells, sounds, colors, or objects unexpectedly trigger them inside your head and you suddenly feel submerged in the middle of that story that seems to belong to another person or another time, but it’s actually your own.
When Pamela invited us to collaborate in this space to explore and share the stories behind some objects part of the ArTradition collection, it became clear to us that there are already many blogs and great, talented people talking about the same thing. Well, the more the better. The main idea of all these notes is to make connections. The more stories are told and shared, the more you will connect people with people, the past with the contemporary, the distant with closeness, you name it. We want to hear the details of your experiences. Perhaps, in a surprising way we will learn that yours are the same as ours, as if we have been living close to one another. And if not, we will learn from the diversity of them: whatever the similarities or differences, they’ll always be a win. Both are knowledge about the our past.
If we don’t relive or repeat memories and traditions they are at risk to be completely lost. What were the colors of your childhood? What memories do you recall from your place of birth? This blog proposes a tour that includes the 20th century in Mexico and through the territory of our personal memories. Follow us, because we want to follow you too. Check our next post, next week!
