Childhood Revisited


Childhood Revisited

What is your earliest memory? Describe it in detail, and tell us why you think that experience was the one to stick with you.


Memories… Which parts of a memories are ‘real’ and which parts of a memories at like ‘he fisherman’s catch’… My memories alter over time. Some earlier memories are altered and adjusted from the retelling that I am not sure which parts are real and which pats are the fisherman’s catch?

Photographs are attached to so many of my memories for early childhood. There is a photo pf me – possibly two years old- and making a mess of a birthday cake.

I remember doing this… yet I cannot remember another birthday party cake ‘ever’ in my life?

There is a picture of me riding our German shepherd, Spot. I think I was about four. I remember the dog. I remember the porch. It looks just like to photograph.

I am not sure that many of my “true” memories are trustworthy???

Heck, I retell so many stories…. I better not go there?
