Some memories, some places, some people are embodiments of personalities that are quite dynamic and difficult to understand. Such things in life need to be revisited, re-looked at, and re-analysed; something the normal mind cannot easily comprehend. They go against the definition of normalcy and that’s what sets them apart. That’s what makes them remembered.
