I wonder if landmarks in our memories can be likened to large buildings that we can look at in the backseat of a car while it drives away.
That while the distance from that memory grows, the inconsequential size and nature of the trees and scenery that rapidly fade into the distance seem to make the landmarks in the distance behind them grow ever slightly larger by sheer comparison.
That landmarks in our mental lives grow more distant in the passing of time, but grow ever slightly more prominent as we compare them to the trivial things that happen henceforth, even as in totality, all our memories communally fade.
