Just picked up Becoming A Writer and the forward remarks that we all have sufficient imaginative power. Even dogs. It is interesting to consider that Nick is not just replaying incidents that half already occurred, but he is dreaming and creating his own stories. Dogs have remarkable visual memory. I can go to somewhere we haven’t visited in years and my dog can guide me appropriately. Caitlin and I went back to Philly. We needed to cross a specific street near the seminary. She remembered to stop for it even though there wasn’t a curb.
