An Internal Rumour


An Internal Rumour is a very personal exploration of my own childhood memories and dreams;  how they frequently meld together, leaving only the emotion they evoked. While a few may seem as vivid as daylight, others have the opaque, diaphanous quality of twilight, where things are sensed and what the eyes see is uncertain. Poet and philosopher George Santanya, from whom the quote about memory as “an internal rumour” comes, went on to describe it as a ‘hearesay of the mind’, with the ‘picture we frame in our mind’ growing every day less and less like the original event.


My childhood hummed with a sense of the magical beyond the green suburbs, and a longing for embrace and inclusion that is often missing in awkward adolescence. Some events I have tried to recreate, even while being cognisant of Santayana’s truth, while others are merely evocations of feeling that those drifting clouds of dream and memory leave in their wake.
