Memories of Love

Somehow listening to Nguyen Chuong’s “Nhung Gi Con Lai” performed by Nguyen Khang reminds me of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, especially with the idiosyncratic lyrics: “Bay gio nguoi ta noi chuyen doi thay trai tim / va muoi nam sau nguoi ta se noi chuyen thay tri nho… / Bay gio nguoi ta noi chuyen doi thay mat moi / va muoi nam sau nguoi ta se noi chuyen thay qua khu.” That’s the mind game of love. Romantic relationship is indulging to get in, but excruciating to get out, and takes some memory hacking to move on. Therefore, one should approach a relationship with both heart and head, not one without the other. The problem is that most fellows started out with their little head then work their way to the heart and up the big head.
