Remembering

I really worked on it…

How is your memory? I figured that with years, my short time memory is waning and that my long term memory is in pretty good shape.  Then I started a project that goes back thirty and forty years. I really worked on it and discovered that I can remember a whole lot more than I thought possible.  Then I worked on it some more and things began to fill in even more.  What I am learning in this endeavor is that one should not just say, “I can’t remember.”  My memory is working a bit like I’m working on a picture puzzle. I get one piece in place and then another. What seemed like an impossible pile of pieces just might begin to develop into something like an outside border and with a lot of patient effort pretty soon you may not have a complete picture but you do have one heck of a lot more than you ever believed possible.
