This collaboration with Kaori Nagata started as a Sprudge article about haunted cups of coffee, but unfortunately that particular project didn't work out. However, I liked Kaori's pieces so much I still wanted to use them for something. That something eventually became the story below:

I'm fascinated with the way our memories are simultaneously a source of comfort and a source of pain. And it's surprising sometimes to think how little control we have over the emotions that attach themselves to what we remember.

I wanted to write something that expressed memories and feelings as ghosts that haunt people, but in a way that felt believable. Because Kaori's pieces were originally based around coffee, I started there and worked my way out; drawing on one of my own haunted memories for color.
