According to recent research, which makes very good sense, déjà vu is a memory problem. Well “of course” we all say. What else could it be! As for me—the article goes on to say that it tends to happen more as one ages and is also a problem in Alzheimer’s patients. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I used to have a lot more déjà vu moments when I was younger, when I was drinking, which also makes a lot of sense when I think about it. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a déjà vu experience, a long time. What about you? Read the whole article here.
PS: If you notice that I’m making fewer or shorter blog entries that’s because my interest in writing creatively seems to have reappeared. I’ve begun my first novel in more than 15 years—or longer—and I’m combing over my poetry with an eye to putting together a book of my best writing there too. Currently, I'm working through a book on neuroscience called, The Feeling of What Happens and a book by Tobin about Ernie Pyle, called Ernie Pyle's War.
