I’m horribly late with this post, but long delays can be nice.   I’ve been thinking about something I read a while back on Jim Emerson’s blog: ” the perspective of experience – moment by moment – has nothing to do with the perspective of memory, which tends to re-shape the entire experience according to how it ended.”  Psychologist Daniel Kahneman gave this great talk at TED,  “The riddle of experience vs. memory,” with odd-yet-appropriate examples like colonoscopies and vacations.
