>Euphoric Recall


My friend Anne turned me on to the phrase “euphoric recall” about ten years ago.

Basically, euphoric recall is when someone remembers all of the good things about a particular time and not the bad.

This happens a lot actually.

One night this week, Grace was mad at me because she was not getting her way. We’ve been butting heads a lot lately.

As we were walking down the stairs, she looked up at the painting on the wall my former mother-in-law had done for us from a photograph. I love the painting. I told her she made me look better than I really do. More Andy Worhol than Botticelli (you know… he painted the chubby girls).

Anyway, as we were walking down the stairs Grace said, “When I was little, and you were nice.. You looked like that” pointing to the painting

Now if THAT isn’t euphoric recall, I don’t know what is.
