just talking about what an unusual number of people i have witnessed declining from dementia for someone who's barely 28, then come across this article to drive it home. however, without prompting in casual conversation i guessed the top 6 or 7 most common names in the US, so i think my rote recall for the useless remains intact, at least. tomorrow - hawks. thursday - the nouveau haligonian descends. friday - off for a weekend on crown land. can't wait for the all night off the grid bassthumping conversations and woodsy, lakey, doggy goodness. need some deep woods novels. hmm.
