Tying the knot
Blogging is quite practical: anything I write down I can look up later. It helps me to keep my memories of pleasant interpreting assignments, interesting translation jobs and amusing every-day experiences from fading. Yet sometimes I almost obsessively want to capture every moment on my iPhone and simply forget to enjoy it. I just recently came across an article according to which just one snapshot could trigger memories of an entire day. Like a knot in the corner of your handkerchief. But when you take a photo of something, you’re counting on the camera to remember for you and don’t engage in any of the emotional kinds of processing that really would help you remember.
