My memory tag for October 16 this year includes the fact my wife went to the capital to visit a friend we have not seen for a while.
I was unable to go myself and when she returned she passed on our friends best wishes. They had tried to work out when we had last all been together.
As I can remember every day of the nearly three years since beginning this process, I was able to say immediately that it was July 16, 2012 and recount where we went and what we did.
It was made a little easier than it might have been as a few hours before I had run through the 16th day of each month as part of the process of refreshing the images pinned to my mental calendar as memory tags, so I had briefly relived the captured moment.
This is a strength of my current system.
As well as being able to remember people and events, I periodically bring them to mind. I can honestly say, 'I was thinking about you recently'.
