Many thanks, andreaas 777, for you thorough explanation, I'll certainly try to see if I can use your method. Some things I do which resemble what you do. I also try to have more than one piece "in the works" at any time; I try to listen first to the piece; I do not learn a measure at a time, but instead, a whole section at a time; I also do not memorize the notes (I'm not good at sight reading at all) and I also memorize, not the notes, but the position of the fingers in LH and RH and, most important, the corresponding sound. When I know which sound must come out at a given time, my fingers just do the rest automatically. When that happens, when I have the piece "in my fingers" then, for all intents and purposes, it is memorized. Once mmorized, I rarely go back to the score again, unless someone calls my attention to a mistake I'm making (it happens a lot) or when I want to make sure I'm respecting the tempo, rest notes, etc...
Thanks again, your explanations, they were quite helpful. I still have to read your two other posts on this subject (your links above), which I'll do today or tomorrow.
