Using colors to assist me

Whenever I need to remember something specific or something that I have forgotten, I use colors to assist me.  Believe it or not; each time I eat a fruit the color of that fruit comes floating into my mind and each time I sit down to eat a meal, my plate lights up with color.  Similarly, each time I go looking for something, the color of what I am looking for comes racing into my mind. 

 

Whenever I go searching for a sheet of paper or an envelope, white for paper and brown for envelope are in attendance.  If I need to remember what grass, flowers, skies, beach, snowflakes, or sun look like, then guess what?  I use color to help me remember.  Six years later after having lost most of my vision and color is still o so vivid in my mind.  Whenever someone talks about things in the supermarket or at the store, I use color to help me picture things.  Ah!  The world of color!  Mine forever.
