Learning to Appreciate My Weird, Selective Memory

In the 10 months since I started working at the library, I have learned the names of 40-50 patrons, and can usually greet them by name when they come in.

In contrast, I have written 100s of poems, but can quote only three or four of the simplest ones from memory.

In a happy note to a friend, I shared that I’m actually starting to appreciate my leaky memory when it comes to Bible study. It’s my honest companion on the journey. It often lets me see passages with fresh eyes, my vision not clouded by years of listening to teachers and preachers.
