Opening the “Mind’s Vault”

As the bullet points and subtopics fall into place on my book project, other events come to mind.  Some events were pushed to the “mind’s vault” – as it is known in my vocabulary.  Life throws curve balls at us.  We learn from them, and put the experience into the “mind’s vault”.  When one is writing a personal memoir, that “vault” suddenly opens unexpectedly.  It does not always contain pleasant memories. For instance,

My topic is being in and out of a body cast for two years, with the events and injuries taking place during that time span included.  Here is one event  from the “vault”:

At one stage during this two years, recuperation included a long leg cast with crutches.  While being driven home from a dinner date, my date started getting verbally abusive. I defended myself. “Shut up or you’ll be walking home,” I heard.  Still  not liking that,  I told him not to talk to me like that.  So, he stopped in front of my house, opened the car door from inside, threw my crutches out, and told me, “That’ll teach you. I told you to shut up. Get out.”

I forgot about that and the idiot involved until I was writing about that time period in my outline.

Well, I wrote about it. So, back in the “vault” it goes. 🙂
