forgetting

The human brain is unique in that it is the only container of which it can be said, that the more you put into it the more it can hold. Glenn Doman

You hear a lot about “senior moments” when you get up in years. That could be because, as the old adage goes, you “use it or loose it”. For the mind needs to stay active just like the body does. Yet, I wonder sometimes, if it isn’t just that we notice more that we’re not remembering. When you’re a ten year old kid and you forget you just don’t think about it that much. I recall, “I forgot”, being one of the oft repeated excuses of all 5 of our children but it never seemed to bother them at all.
