As morning light filters through my bedroom curtain, motley thoughts streak through my awakening mind. Each one shouts: "Remember me!" Reminding myself to pay heed to this useful admonition, before getting up, I adjust the height of my bedside lamp. It is perched on books of various thickness, for better night reading light. So I do my usual random opening a book, and read a paragraph. It happens to be about different languages being more or less profuse; how too many adjectives can overdose or confuse. But right now I'm totally exasperated: I can't remember ONE word ......Where's my Thesaurus!!!
