Speak, Memory

"… the effective work of memory is the very definition of art."

— "In Memoriam: Chris Marker," by Richard Brody,

New York Lottery this evening: 178, 0772.

Definition:  See 178 on May 25, 2012.
Art:  See 772 on Nov. 21, 2010 and Harvard Black Diamond.

The time of this post, 8:28, may be taken as
a reference to the date, 8/28, of the Feast of St. Augustine.
Augustine's remarks on memory are not without interest.

"In reality, my prose books
probably sit between
I Was a Teenage Sex Slave
and some other contemporary
memoir written in five minutes…."

Mary Karr in the NY Times
of July 6, 2007

"In a dream scenario, my memoirs…
would find another shelf.
They’d sit between St. Augustine
  and Nabokov’s Speak, Memory…."

— Mary Karr, loc. cit.

mnemonic rhyme
"Nine is a Vine."
