“I simply remember my FAVORITE things … and then i don’t feel so bad” from The Sound of Music.
Knowledge of my Favorite PLACES, favorite Fabrics, favorite colors and songs. All of these would be crucially important if/when i lose ability to make my own decisions, and ability to communicate.
“When you know something about somebody,
you care for them in a more personal way”
