Things have been a bit slow around here...life has been so busy... It seems that I'm living week to week, always telling myself that I'll work on something as soon as I finish the other thing. But then you're either tired or you want to spend time with some friends and it keeps piling up...
But it'll get better after I finish this summer writing class, which I bring up because for it as a final project, I'm writing about my mom's childhood in Communist Poland. I asked her about it and she was just brought all the way back and went on for a long time about everything she could remember, even surprising herself because she said she'd forgotten most of it. I think childhood experiences are extremely valuable and hearing about people's pasts helps me imagine myself in their place and lets me appreciate that person as they are now even more.
Do you value your past and the pasts of others? Do you reminisce about when you were really young a lot? Now that you're older, can you remember certain events that changed or helped shape you as a person? Do you like to hear or talk with people you know about what they remember ever since they were really young? What is the first thing you can even remember?
