Last spring I was studying Latin on a regular basis -- 30 minutes per day of Henle.

I put it aside for the summer.

I put it out of my mind. Totally.

I got the books out today. "In Latin some prepositions are followed by the ablative case, some by the accusative case.... always learn what case a preposition governs." Accusative? Ablative? Ummm, let's see, Never Gag Down An Ant, so those are the last 2, but which one is which?

And the singular versus the plural declensions? No longer something I know.

I feel like I'm doing an archeological dig in my brain, trying to remember this stuff.

So eery to realize that I could understand this just a couple of months ago.
