Thought Association

I noticed that I was smiling as I exercised on the treadmill this morning.  While I was on a thought adventure at the time, it was not the prompt.  I recalled another consistent thought association which occurs when I use a squeegee to remove excess water from the tile after my shower.  It is also known, for example, that memory enhancement  techniques associate the item to be remembered with an object in the room.  I had been practicing my smile on the treadmill over several weeks and this morning it showed up by association with the treadmill all by itself.  Nice!  [Russell]
