Memory

I was struck by neuroscientist Wendy Suzuki's story on the Moth Radio Hour today, Saying I Love You. A key moment in her story is remembering her father tell her "All we really have is our memories." The beauty and the poignancy of the memory were reinforced by recalling having read a pair of quotes about memory earlier in the day.
