The definition of linger is to stay in a place longer than necessary, typically because of reluctance to leave. This definition also describes the way fragments of the soul get left behind as time moves on. Sentimental longing for the past drifts through our minds at random. Nostalgia is rooted in the senses and we unconsciously seek the past in our present. These images represent the thin line between memories and current realities, questioning the boundaries between real experience and human consciousness.
