Average and Amazing

How photographic is your memory:  Once seen, always filed? Overexposed? Out of focus? Needs developing? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 546).

Like most folks I plead average here having envied those with mouse trap minds.  Yet I stand amazed at the instrument God has given the average person in this regard. I can hear a brief bar of music or smell a faint aroma and a whole flood of imagery can overcome me, sometimes retrieved from years ago. I can seemingly inexplicably traverse a matrix of associations and can on the instant think of words I had long forgotten I ever knew. Ideas pop in my head with an automatic immediacy that leaves me amazed.  I can head down tried and true territory and suddenly see a new slant or angle that I had never seen before, as obvious as it now seems. The mind is truly a marvel interfacing with the Holy Spirit on many levels.
