Diagram Sketch

A picture is worth a thousand words. You should be able to remember more than one.

A right-brain activity artistically provides a general meaning which facilitates an association between a pictorial concept and quite possibly a group of related lexical terms. The adage that a picture is worth a thousand words opens up a plethora of contextual vocabulary for describing quantity and quality, size and age, color and shape in addition to identifiers and qualifiers. An additional mnemonic device should accompany this methodology as short-term memory fades with celerity.
