SorRY, cOMe AgAin?

I had a beautiful closing line to this blog when I woke this morning. Unfortunately, I have since forgotten what that line is. I’m sure it’s still somewhere inside me, but I have clean forgotten the words, or the sequence that they are in.

It exasperates me sometimes. I’ll be walking from one end of the house to another, only to walk back and forth aimlessly trying to remember what it is I wanted to take. Or I’ll see a face I recognize yet unable to name. Other times, I just don’t even remember what I wanted to say.

We used to joke, it’s early-onset Alzheimer’s. And the joke isn’t that funny anymore.

How fleeting are thoughts. Or perhaps, I just have a short memory.
