We all have memories.
Any people write a diary or draw a sketchbook, other (like me) make a blog.
Most of people take photos, thats easy today.
In earlier times, only rich people could hire a painter to make portraits of themselves and family.
Today we can take a smartphone and make a selfie...
But there are also memories that can not hold by photos or be expressed in words.
These are stored in our soul.
Memories of earlier times are living in tales of grandparents or in early old photos.
Archaic memories we can find in fairy tales and legends.
There are also collective memory of groups of people, tribes and nations.
These are often marked by conflicts and wars, flights and expulsions.
I often wonder how the memory of animals.
What does my cat remember about her former homeless life?
Presumably she remembers people who have done their evil, because she remains very shy and suspiciuos.
Although she is loved and has it well with us.
Have also animals collective memory?
It is painful for me to think, which memories might have cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys and other held in mass barns for slaughter animals - - -
