  1. This is a remarkable revelation of how some people think- a chain of connected ideas that starts in what one sees or hears or remembers and ends somewhere completely different. Then the fun part is remembering how it got there! I think in this day-dreamy way sometimes, and was shocked when a friend told me they always think in complete sentences. There are studies about how people think that are just fascinating. I hope you write down your ideas!
