Trying to remember

I’m trying to remember things I’ve done. Of course highlights of one’s life do live in the memory, but sometimes putting them in order or remembering which year they were in is challenging. Luckily, the electronic trail left behind gives plenty of clues. Those old credit card statements that you thought about throwing away (and that’s another story) hint at exciting times. Just HOW many times have I visited the Meson Don Felipe? What WAS I doing in Ilkley?

As you might be able to guess, a forthcoming birthday prompts such memory-hunting, along with (the other story) an ongoing paper reduction task to digitise old records and then throw them away. That’s the hard part! Not quite as extreme as these guys, but it is liberating to see mountains of paper that you were saving just in case disappear.
