“The past is a place of reference, not a place of residence; the past is a place of learning, not a place of living.”
― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart
In Vietnamese, the word for missing someone and remembering them is the same: nhớ. Sometimes when you ask me over the phone, Con Nhớ Mẹ không? I flinch, thinking you meant, Do you remember me?
I miss you more than I remember you.
