October is here, and with it another Meditation Games catchup post!
Internal dialogue can take many forms, especially when it comes to trying to figure out yourself and your own potential anxieties. Sometimes it’s a bit intangible-seeming, a kind of overarching presence that seeks to give you a direction to go. But sometimes it can take an actual form that your imagination and your worries give life. The latter is what I was reminded of going through today’s desktop-riding spider/bug of a game.
We can’t really expect to remember every single thing that happens in our lives. The fact of the matter is that the memories we have, at least in the vast majority of instances, blend together and are a bit hazy. While vivid detail is reserved for the most remembered or the most significant moments of ones life, and that certainly there are both negative and positive reasons why a memory could be preserved, most of what we experience day to day is remembered, stored, and then recalled in vague recollections and depictions. It’s really tough to describe that experience visually, which is why this particular Meditation Games entry is impressive to me.
I’ve never really had a good foundation for being able to skillfully play classic games. The ones that have been peppered throughout this project have been pretty big challenges for me. I’m not sure what it is – perhaps it’s the fact that I can’t get the timing right, or maybe that I’m just too nervous when trying to get to where I’m going, or maybe it’s just that I’m getting old and my reflexes can’t keep up any more. Any way you slice it, I’ve had problems – which is why the mechanics of this particular classic collector game were welcome to me.
While a lot of times memories are made even if the circumstances seem mundane, there is something to be said about making them in places and in situations where they’re truly memorable for how and where they unfold. Of all those types of memories, marriage proposals are one of those types of memories that benefits from being done in a setting that is not easily forgotten.
