via Daily Prompt: Memorize
You know that saying: An elephant never forgets?
I feel like that elephant. My memory is for lack of a better word, sharp. Mostly in terms of situations, melodies, feelings and random bits of info that only the smallest segment of humanity will ever care about or have a use for, as opposed to numbers or data or something more academic.
I’m actually getting better at dismissing, or divesting, which is progress when one considers how much we invest in life and the meaning we infuse into things, without knowing the true cost. I have lots of material and inspiration, plenty of brain power and capability, but perhaps a rather limited number of ways to celebrate the results.
I’m sure I’ll figure it out eventually.
