a note on recitation

Ken Rumble asked me about my deck and how much memorization I do, after the reading in Durham. I talked about how my workflow is an aid to memorization, as is the postcards project. That answered the how part, and the conversation moved on, but I think now he was asking about the why part more than the how.  So, I use my deck as a prompt and a prop. As a prop it gives me something to do, and helps me keep my hands out of my pockets. As a prompt, the larger type and smaller page size (smaller than letter) keeps me from losing my place, so I can look up. Looking up helps me project my voice; it also allows me the great payoff of getting to see that look on your face.
