Silence, no longer deafening….

Out doing our 3,000 steps for the morning…. and I noticed that, again, we were both very quiet….

I brought up a fluff subject, it went no where…. so the walk continued in easy silence….

It wasn’t always that way… Other than telling Mike my stories over the decades… and normal everyday stuff… I didn’t motor mouth much…. until….

Nov 7, 2017 when I remembered the night Margie died…. Big Springs, Texas… 1967….. just about 50 years exactly….. 50 years of amnesia….

Though I appreciate what the neurologist said, that there was no apparent brain damage that would impede my regaining all my memories…. it sure isn’t happening fast or in great detail….

Though I say I only remember so much… that is a misnomer… I remember quite a bit, it’s the specifics… that elude me… you know the video editing mode… where you view it in detail… and there in lies the problem….

The details….

Why is the silence not deafening… my brain is to busy digesting all that is opening up…. the specifics that I am looking for, those are more buried and the layers of protection I put in place after the Japan beating and stroke… those are harder to over come….

Our walks may be quieter…. but both of us are lost in our thoughts as we walk this journey together…..
