Something I learned from the Acoma
She is our youngest daughter.
With any luck she will outlive us all.
Her brain will outlast any recording or storage device or method we have.
She will have the power to transmit her memories to the youngest daughter in her time.
So it is more important to put our memories in her, than it is for us to have memories of her.
It is more important for her to have pictures in her head of us, than for us to take pictures of her.
She has enough memory to save our stories, our values, our connections.
Her brain and heart are our most important assets.
