When trying to make one universal statement about memory, one aspect comes to mind. Our memories and the brain structures that support memory are plastic, which means that memory expands and contracts over time and types of stimulation.

Most of us have been paying an increased sales tax for transportation projects since 1985 and any tangible evidence of our money at work is gratifying. Since very little of Ahwatukee is south of Chandler Boulevard, the impact on most of us will be marginal.

After a near fatal accident 18 years ago, which left my husband permanently blind, I thought the grief would never go away. The grief was so intense it permeated every cell in my body.

The trips we had planned on taking with friends were crushed in a fleeting moment. I still miss the feeling of “I am safe” when I looked into his eyes. His gaze had always told me things would be OK.
