    Thank you, Mike. All of us are stirred by strong emotions. The more we can get in touch with them, the stronger our writing becomes.

    It so often happens that I think my memory is just gone. My husband will recount an experience we had together that I don’t remember at all or barely remember. And then I see a picture or catch a whiff of an aroma, or pick up a utensil my mother used and, as you said, the whole experience comes flooding back in detail. Names I couldn’t call up, I suddenly remember.

    Thanks for this exercise. I love the idea of collecting words that stick!

    The senses of touch, smell, taste, vision and hearing–Speck!–can deepen our recall of experiences by bringing rich details and new meaning to life’s events. You’ve got a wonderful memory, Jan. And you know how to dip into it!
