Think about an early memory in your life that you always come back to. Maybe it’s a memory of a very happy time or day that you spent with others. Maybe it’s a memory of something that frightened you and still gives you the chills when you think about it. Maybe it’s a memory of some kind, loving words that were said to you, or, then again, maybe it’s a memory of harsh words that you heard or spoke which changed things for you. Maybe, even, it’s the earliest memory you have when, say, you were still in the crib or carriage — what is it you saw or heard or smelled or touched?
Take some time to write about this memory and why it is important to you. Share your memory. You can write it in the form of a dream or poem or short essay, or even as a play to be performed by others. Our memories are very important to us; they feed us throughout our lives, so honor your memory.
