I like the title of the Paul McCartney song because it gives me an excuse for my fading memory. Let’s face it, folks, old age is not for sissies, and a fading memory is part of the new reality.
So is it time for the assisted living center? No! “Rage against the dying of the light,” as Dylan Thomas said. Grab your iPhone or iPad, tap on your favorite notes app (mine is Notebooks, but Reminders or Drafts work fine) and write down whatever you’re trying to remember. If you’re driving, yell “Hey Siri.” Or repeat it to yourself until you get home and then write it down. Whatever. Just. Write. It. Down.
