Memory: In Search of What's Lost
From tomorrow's New York Times Sunday Magazine:
In Search of Lost Time
By CATHRYN JAKOBSON RAMIN The New York Times Published: December 5, 2004
A few months ago, as I trudged down the stairs of my office building, deep in my thoughts, I noticed a dark-haired woman waving to me from the window of her car. She looked vaguely familiar, but I couldn't place her. Like quite a few others, she had slipped out of my mental Rolodex. In my brain, the synaptic traces that connected us had frayed. Yet again, I had misplaced an entire human being.
