The oldest memory you remember from your childhood.
I'm writing since I remember. All my childhood my fingers was always black from atrament. And the gift I had been enjoying most as a kid was a notebook. I couldn't wait till I sit at my desk and make it full with words and illustrations.
But this is not my first memory from my childhood. My first ever memory of my life is a small toy lying on the ground on a train station. A cat-doll in a pink dress. Everyone is in hurry. My mother is pulling my hand. And I watch my little cat lying on the ground. But I don't say anything. I don't pick it up. I just watch it in silence.
When I asked my parents many years later about that they told me that cat-doll was my favourite toy and I didn't want to put it in my backpack and I was holding it in my hands all the way from Japan to Poland. But I lost it somewhere. They didn't notice it and they didn't know where I lost it. I was three years old.
I'm not sad I lost it. So many material things human wants to own. But the dearest for us are always the memories.
What is your first memory?
