I don't know if it makes any sense - I feel quite dizzy and a little drunk due to the blow. I will return with more info shortly...

Forget exit narratives. Forget the other city. Forget everything. Somebody did — it is possible. A ceiling fan hit S.M. in the head over twenty years ago. The papers reported the blow had erased her memory and that her life rebooted right then and there in her kitchen. She went 2.0 they described, as if a better model had just arrived. Her family in the next room found a new version of her lying on the floor and because she had forgotten and continues to forget, S.M. is always beginning.

It happens to us sometimes. We blackout. It all comes rushing back and it’s harsh. But that’s here. If we moved this over there, we could make it new, like it has been forgotten. Make it unrecognizable and have a chance to see it from the beginning. Here we go.
