Memories

Memories warm you up

Memories warm you up from the inside! Yes it is what makes us so very human. We … I … love remembering the beautiful moments in our lives and often long to be back there. There is something truly ethereal about a treasured memory. So hidden and safe inside of our hearts and yet ready and always available to “live in” again when we most need it.

What brings back a memory for you?

Sometimes all it takes is a familiar smell or a certain taste to evoke an old memory, making you feel like you are back in time in that moment where it was created.

I find that fragrances — bring back the most amazing memories. One of my favourite is the yesterday – today & tomorrow bush flowers. I have google it and can’t find a satisfying description of their smell. For me is like the aroma of coffee – and I find it totally comforting and infinitely “more-ish” Have you smelt them? If not it’s a must – a bucket list thing FOR SURE.

So … memories – where would we be without them and what an amazing design they are.

Animal memories

Animals too have been blessed with memories! My personal favourite is the magnificent Elephant. So …

What does it mean to have a memory like an Elephant?

Well “Än elephant never forgets” is an idiom so if someone has a memory like an elephant it means they are pretty amazing. But where did this actually come from? …. Lets find out

Quote from The Phrase Finder

AN ELEPHANT NEVER FORGETS – “First attested in the United States in ‘Blue Ridge’ by W. Martyn. The proverb is probably of Greek origin. The Greeks sometimes say, ‘The camel never forgets an injury,’ according to Burton Stevenson. ‘To have a memory like an elephant’ is used as a figure of speech.” From Random House Dictionary of Popular Proverbs and Sayings by Gregory Y. Titelman (Random House, New York, 1996). A second reference adds to this and has an earlier citation date: “Said of someone with a prodigious memory, usually for slights and wrongs. It was not the memory of the elephant but that of the camel that was renowned amongst the Greeks long ago. A Greek proverb ran ‘Camels never forget an injury.’ Proverbial reference to the elephant’s memory is relatively recent. In ‘Reginald: Reginald on Besetting Sins’ , the camel is usurped by the elephant: ‘Women and elephants never forget an injury.’ The author, Saki, was no stranger to elephants having been born in Burma and lived there, and would have appreciated the intelligence of the animal. The working elephant memorises a large number of commands given by the mahout and recognizes many other animals and people, thus remembering both kindnesses and injuries. Since its life-span is 50 or 60 years these memories are long-lived. Usage: Usually said of a person who does not forget injuries, but an ‘elephantine memory’ could just be a good one.” From the “Dictionary of Proverbs and their Origins” by Linda and Roger Flavell (First published in the UK by Kyle Cathie Ltd, Barnes and Noble Inc, 1997, New York)

Some beautiful quotes

  • The best thing about memories is making them?
  • Things end but memories last forever
  • A moment lasts all of a second but the memory lives on forever

Memories are timeless treasures of the heart.

On a closing note … at Zulumoon Gondolas – making memories has become a pillar of who we are. We believe in people. We value friendships, families and communities. We cherish memories and are so honoured to be a part of your story of your memories. We hope to be an encouragement especially now in this tough time of covid 19 and all the struggles faced by so many.
