Maureen Seaton and Denise Duhamel The human brain stores a million gigabytes of memory, so why is it I canât recall where I plunked down my keys or orange ï¬ash drive? If only I could access the words of Proust I read at twenty or what you said yesterday about how to treat a coldâwas it frankincense? Frank remembers you so clearly but you canât access his face even looking at his picture. High school classmates, grade school teachers: a blur! Iâve always wanted to tell you that my mother with Alzheimerâs recalled her Carteret childhood in encyclopedic detailâbut that was it. Did she forget being a mother and your childhood? I love reimagined retro postcards: I left my baby on the bus! Or I forgot to have children. Thatâs my Mom! Unable to spell the world backward by ï¬fty-ï¬ve. d-lr-o-w. They say the brain alters a memory simply by remembering it. That is why I remember my second-grade accordion as gold but in pictures it is maroon. In one my hair has a green tintâimpossible, or ahead of your time, as always! They also say our short-term memory holds only seven pieces of information at a time.
