As I've indicated elsewhere, much of the first six weeks of 2013 are forever lost to me. There are no deposits in my memory bank for those days and hours. Of course one doesn't have to be hospitalized to experience that phenomenum - a boring car ride, poorly organize summer camp, or even a long conference can have the same effect.
The solution: associate the time with a marker that can be remembered, documented and shared.
This 500 piece puzzle with the picture of a neighborhood carnival was begun when Lee came to stay with us for a week and was completed when RevaBeth and Keith visited. And now that I have a picture of it I no longer even need the physical pieces of the puzzle.
What markers do you use to capsulize time?
