This tv show talked also about that. Indeed it was called "Inventamos el pasado" ("We make up our past").
My brother says he remember our greatgrandfather who died when he was 1. Of course he's seen the pictures of him and make up the rest in his mind.

my first memory as far as I can recall is walking down Killiney Hill to mass in a little frock hand in hand between my parents

I also remember my first fairy tale book - which was pink and I can still remember the thrill of seeing it new and opening it

when I was about 6 I started a club with the neighbourhood kids called the Wit Fit Club

we had little notebooks to write our witticisms in

and then we'd exercise.....heheheeh

the book I'm reading at the moment about writing your life story deals with memory (like what you said Guacamayo and doc hornblower)

about whether our early (or any) of our memories are real and true or just things we've been told or things we aren't remembering accurately.....

interesting

Once the smell of baby poo made me see a room where entered the light of the afternoon sun through the window, and I thought it was a memory about my parents changing my nappies... but I guess it is just a false memory

I still love the smell of Johnson's baby lotion and baby talcum powder

A reflection fropm Leunig
"........................each of us will always remember where we were
when we heard of the death of Osama bin Laden" Julia Gillard


Where were you when you heard the news
That Osama had gone to heaven ?
I was in my den rembering when
They stuck the knife in Kevin.

Where were you when you heard the news
That humans are envious creatures
I was in good luck with a beautiful duck
admiring its virtuous features.

Where were you when you heard the news
That truth was almost dead ?
I was far away on an autumn day
With a teapot on my head.

I was in the bathroom texting a sms so my sister didn't see I was using her phone. When I got out I saw my family energetically commenting the news, I couldn't believe a plain had just crashed against one of those towers... and then a second one crashed against the other Question

I was catching a lift on a mothership back to port. We were tied up behind Bountiful Island while two trawlers were alongside us unloading. One of the cooks on the 'Raptis Pearl' was an American woman and her sister in New York had just rang her mobile and told her what was happening. She came running into the galley of the mothership and was so hysterical that it was impossible to understand what she was saying. When her fellow deckhand translated we all thought she'd gone mad from the rigours of a frenetic prawn season. Nobody believed her. I arrived in port the next night and of course the footage was on every screen. I'll never forget the look on that woman's face.

It was also my birthday and the skipper took us ashore after the unloads. The walk around the small, sundrenched, barren but beautiful island was also unforgettable.
