Writer and amateur photog. I seek to inspire and inform with the words I write and share and the photos I take. I have written a book of short stories: Terra Cotta Beauty, and I am working on a lot more. Reading and writing fuel my energy. In reading, I explore this vast and diverse world, in writing, I employ my over-active imagination and address the 'what-if' questions that life often throws at us.


Blame It On The Door

By on August 23, 2012

Have you ever entered a room with the intention to do something and then, you just completely forget why you are there? Well, blame it on the door. Yes, seriously. According to the folks who know about these things, when you pass through a doorway, you trigger what is known as an event boundary separating one set of thoughts and memories from the next. So, your brain files away the thoughts that you had in the previous room and prepares a blank slate for the new locale. Who knew? So the next time you think senility is slowly setting in, when you walk into a room, look at the door and wag your finger!
