Good morning! It is supposed to be another beautiful day here....seventy something and sunshine. I am a little tired, but not bad. I will go to school and then take it easy this afternoon. I like taking one class at a time. It is not as stressful! And I am liking this class so much. Today we are studying Greek art. So funny that in two days we have gone through Egyptian art. I am glad there is a book with this class, or I might miss something:) I think we only get three days for Greek art. She said it usually takes 6 hours of lecture. I was reading the chapter last night after the temple and I decided there was a lot to learn. I hope I can retain this. It is a little worrisome to me that memories are so elusive anymore. At the temple last night I was greeted by one of the temple presidency brothers, someone I worked with a lot when I was a worker there, but it took me probably 10 or 15 minutes to remember his name. I guess I am glad I remembered it eventually. But it still bothers me. I think it is good I am going to school. It makes me think and exercise those neuro pathways....and create new ones. I heard a story on npr about a mathematics professor that had severe Alzheimer's, but no one was aware of it until they did an autopsy after his death. I guess his brain was full of placque, but they theorize he was constantly creating new pathways because of having to solve math problems. As I am writing this I am thinking...is that accurate? I suppose to be accurate with this story I would have to investigate npr's archives, and I have no time for that this morning.
Well, I must be on my way. I hope your day is lovely out there in cyberspace land. Take care and keep smiling. I will do the same. HAVVVGW!!! Melody
