Good Morning, God!
And it IS a GOOD morning! Partly because we are Beginning To Head HOME!
And it’s partly because of two articles in this month’s Discover magazine. I love it, God, when ideas come from two directions!
The first article was about regrowing muscles and other body parts, using Extra Cellular Matrix — a thin layer of protein from pigs bladders or intestines — as a structure or scaffolding for new growth.
The second article was by Joshua Foer — author of Moonwalking with Einstein — about how to use Memory Palaces to remember an amazing number of images/data.
It came to me, God, that in both cases STRUCTURE was being used to achieve remarkable results. Structure, as in visualizing the interior of a building, and structure as in the support scaffolding of the Extra Cellular Matrix. Joshua Foer made the point — which I have known, but not made use of, for years — that we remember by Location.
Somehow, God, reading BOTH these articles in the same day helped me FOCUS on the idea that I can use the Structure of Our Home and Our Offices to help us remember! I had already bought a decorative key hook for Kit to use coming up the stairs from the car. And I will move the key holder in my office down to the same location. Closer is easier, God!
Car Keys are such a delightful symbol of Having Control of Our Lives. And HUNTING for Car Keys is such a painful activity! So, I am EAGER to get home and begin Reassessing and Utilizing the Various Structures in Our Lives. Please, God! Help me REMEMBER this intention!
