The burden of recall

Memory, however, is meant to be mobile; it resists stable fixation.  The memories placed symbolically into the placeholders of physical manifestations immediately begin to dissolve and lose strength. As soon as we affix our thoughts and recollections to the constructed form, the burden is lifted from our minds to recall them on a regular basis.  In this respect, the physical object hastens forgetting. (Smith, 2009, p. 69).
