NOTHING can be worse than losing memory of people, places, experiences, objects. I’m not just talking about amnesia, even forgetting trivial stuff like the title of a good book, song or movie is really annoying. It’s so hard to focus on important things that you have to accomplish within the day if you’re bothered by something you cannot remember no matter how you try.
When I was pregnant two years ago, I bought a CD of classical music because according to my obstetrician, it will help develop the mind of my child. As I listened to it day and night, I realized I’ve fallen in love with one of the tracks. Back then, I knew the title of that Mozart piece by heart. In fact when I gave birth, I would always mention the title of that classical piece to my baby before humming it to her.
Now, all I could remember about my favorite number on that classical CD is that it comes before the final track. How pathetic.
This morning around 2, I woke up to my baby’s tiny voice. She was hungry so I fed her a bottle of milk then hummed the Mozart piece again so she could go back to wonderland.
I racked my brains out trying to bring the title of this tune I’m humming back to mind. It took me an hour to follow Sonnet to wonderland because of this activity. I didn’t want to close my eyes until I have remembered the title of that beautiful Mozart piece.
After breakfast today, I looked all over the TV cabinet in the living room but the CD was nowhere in sight. Here at work, I instructed myself to finish all my articles for the lifestyle page of our paper for I could use some time researching on Mozart and his works.
Still no success so I resorted to this. I’ll just have to visit a record bar.
