The book «Flow» tells us about the aberration of memory, that is, the distortion of memory.
On the example of one story about parting, 
I show how over time we remember and perceive the same event in different ways. 
There is nothing permanent.

book 1 

18 October, 1998 

parted several hours ago. 

he said, it’s better alone* 

everything 

blurred and empty 

pain runs through the body* 

nightmorningnightnightnight 

anyone alive in here? 

 

book 2 

4 September, 1999 

it was clear from the start 

we would part. 

i am trying to erase all the memories 

not mad at him but 

our lives are so different, maybe, this was bound to happen 

running in circles afraid struggling* 

 

book 3 

7 July, 2001 

the memories came flooding back 

we were good together. 

and what 

if 

we meet again? 

carefully and tenderly

i am looking for his silhouette, but only strangers on my way 

 

The main text. 

I close my eyes. Memories emerge in my head.

 They are the proof of who I am and where I am from. 

They are always different, it all depends on my state. 

The memories become distorted over time, taking on new senses and shadows. 

Oblivion means death
