Hsinchu, Taiwan
Chen Hong-zhi's notebooks are his life. Nine years ago, Chen seriously damaged his hippocampus, a part of the brain associated with forming memories, in a traffic accident. The 26-year-old has lost the ability to make and retain short-term memories. Instead, he painstakingly records his days in lined notebooks, crammed with entries in blue ink. "I use the notebook to remember who I helped today, how much farm work I did, whether there was rain ... the notebook is my memory," said Chen, who lives with his stepmother, Wang Miao-cyong, 65, in a remote village in Hsinchu County, northwestern Taiwan. "I once lost one of my notebooks. I was so sad that I was crying and asked my dad to help me find it." Since his father died four years ago, Chen and his stepmother have lived on a government disability allowance and a small income they get from farming fruits and vegetables, which they barter with neighbours, some of whom call Chen "notebook boy".
