"Memory’s version captures a truth about the place, not merely as it appears, but as it was felt, played in, dreamed of, as its lineaments intertwined and pulled on mine, delicately adjusting the sails of childhood to catch the breath of meaning that emanates from things - things which, to an adult’s rigging, have only the unbreezy weight of the ordinary about them. Memory can offer up the richness of imagining, where a photograph would only dole out the thin gruel of the visually literal."
