Despite a slight fading, I still have an incredible memory.

Smell & taste are probably my strongest senses, followed closely by hearing. I have wondered if my acute sense of smell is related to my strong memory and have concluded that it must be. I intuitively break complex smells and tastes into all the tiny components that make the whole. Because smell is a proven trigger to memory I figure that my ability to smell with such detail provides my brain with near constant reminds of the past.

Of course, this is all speculation, but I like nothing more than to speculate.
