Isn't this odd-I too have suffered from the unwittingly strange
behavior which befalls needing a visual cue for memory! I always
either picture movies which might be playing and I remember my
thoughts during the exact scenes when I watch repeats. I always
would draw as I listened and only remember what was being taught and
said with the drawings I made during lectures. I also remember my
thoughts when I hear songs, it's sort of like recurring dreams. I
not only remember thoughts but exact scenes of action which is
happening in a room- another analogy of a very Hichcockian
