Memory and Aging

One of the disadvantages of aging is losing your memory. It happens in fits and starts – little episodes of absences from your recollection. Time lines are broken by voids; little mystery spaces where you do not know what happened. So they tell me…

Meantime, I have developed a new form of aging impaired memory: instead of forgetting things, I make them up. For example, in a recent session report, I said that Rosalynn won the San Juan game we played. Apparently I remembered it wrongly. In fact, Sheer won.  Oops. Apologies all round.
