    Yeah I relate to this also. If I note a detail, then my brain will latch onto it & create a story with it. Or it's ALL I see, at the expense of other things.

    I'm always imagining something not there...be it people or some aspect of the experience. I feel disappointed with reality a lot. I imagine something grander going on simultaneously - how it COULD be, if perfect. And I ponder what significance it has to me, which tends to influence how much I engage or not.

    I can only really enjoy the sensory aspects if I get into some zone where it's more a wash of atmosphere. Then, like you, I remember a kind of mood for the whole thing. The mental pictures I bring up are not snapshots of reality, but my brain telling me a story of what I feel happened, based on the overall impressions left. I pretty much realize I remember my thoughts & feelings in an experience more than the experience itself (so Fi-Si).

    After awhile, it's like a dream where you can't quite recall what happened at all but you still feel its effects and know there was something important about it. And later, an experience is squashed further into some vague reference point that at best, symbolizes some meaning a phase in life has been assigned.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)
