This night I have been thinking about a subject that I wanted to post about. By day I can't remember it anymore. Is that because I'm getting old or is the fact that I lost the structure of a church lead by a god causing that. I think I'm doing quite well without, but maybe the memories based on preconceptions that I erased also made holes in my memory. I don't know, but it is still uncomfortable.
Hoi Gerrit. Het is zeker je nothing post en schrijf, dus niet binna het kerkof. Was de familie van je vrouw uit Friesland of Gronigen, (Reformed Christians)? Alstublieft, het spijt mijn heele slecht nederlandse.---------and before everybody gets all twisted into a knot, I will not practice my limited Dutch again.
I am 74 (as of two days ago), and this sort of thing happens to me quite a lot. The thing I am trying to remember generally comes back to me, though not necessarily at the most opportune time. I don't think the fact that I long ago lost my religious faith has anything whatever to do with it.
It may have to do with your brainwave state. At night you are likely in a relaxed alpha brainwave state, where insights are more prevalent. Write it down as soon as the idea comes to you. If you're lying in bed, keep a notebook and pen (or tablet) on your nightstand next to you. During the day, you are usually in a beta brainwave state.
