What is your earliest memory?
"Memory... is the diary that we all carry about with us." ~ Oscar Wilde.
Whether we use our memories pragmatically or spiritually, our internal reflections are a powerful source of inspiration and guidance that we can all draw upon as creative people. We would like you to reflect upon and share that moment which was powerful enough to become your earliest memory. Is it something you keep safely stored away in the back of your mind or is it in the forefront, where you're able to revisit it often? We're curious to know... do you remember when?
Going through a photo album where i was two years old, i remembered more than i expected! I remember seeing a large praying mantis on a porch, it was fascinating. I remember our first car(Buick Roadmaster), burying pennies into a sandpit to grow a money tree, playing in the sun and garden hose chasing rainbows, and trying to imitate my dad paint/draw.
There're plenty of memories, and they truly feel deep in my psyche and are a treasured part of my identity.
i'm not too sure what my first memory is (exactly), but like DZarov, my earliest memories are like a photo album. they include: playing in the backyard at my parent's house, my mom teaching me to swim in the sound (which helped me develop into a really great swimmer who is terrified of the water) and also my older cousin teaching me to draw... which i still love to do.
as i get older, my memories are clearer and more neatly organized... kind of like damian lewis' memory in stephen king's dreamcatcher. and also like that movie, i keep them safe under lock & key where i visit them as often as possible.
