There are few things in life that we remember and think back on fondly – the birth of our kids, first kiss, wedding day… These are those moments that we carry with us, ready to tell and retell anyone that’s willing to listen (or not).
But what is a memory?
We drink ginkgo biloba, post millions of pictures on Facebook, and save souvenirs/momentos of these events to hold on to that piece of time. It’s the dolls, gum wrappers, pictures and videos, and basically – anything – that will take you back to that moment in time. When it was cold, November day and you took your daughter to Times Square with her best friend to enjoy a random, fun meeting of the best blogging minds. It is probably this post that will come back to you years and years from now when your grandchildren (or great-grandchildren) join you and ask: “What was mom doing when this happened?”
And as the sounds, smell and feel from that day return, you’ll be ready to tell your story.
