Don’t Memorize, Write an Article


mem·o·rize
ˈmeməˌrīz/Submit
verb
commit to memory; learn by heart.

As my memory starts to play games with me I have taken to writing things down. Not just grocery lists and the like, but family history and lore. With two such memory-boosters developing from mere notes to published articles about my grandmothers.

  1. I think that is a lot of what blogging is about for most of us. It’s a way to write down family stories before they get lost in time or simply forgotten.
    As for all the rest, we’ve been writing stuff down for a long time … in the calendar on our computers (a shared calendar keeps us from overlapping) and on the kitchen whiteboard. I can’t remember anything for more than 10 seconds at a time anymore. It goes in, goes on … poof!
