  • Memories are a big part of who I am
  • Memories connect my siblings and I together
  • Memories are the who, what, when and where of my life
  • Memories are complicated ~ they can sometimes get muddled
  • Memories allow you to hold on
  • Memories can be lost and totally forgotten
  • Memories can cause a range of emotions
  • Memories can easily flow upon hearing a voice
  • Memories can be sparked by someone asking a question
  • Memories sometimes need to be shared
  • Memories can be triggered by a certain smell
  • Memories can flood your mind when looking at photos
  • Memories sometimes add just a bit of fantasy
  • Memories fade over time
  • Memories are a big part of who I am

“Memory is a way of holding on to the things you love,

the things you are, the things you never want to lose.”

~Kevin Arnold~


  1. Great quote by Kevin Arnold! I do especially love a memory stirred by a familiar scent. Play Dough and Crayola crayons are among my faves!

  2. I like how you captured the many characteristics of memories. They are complex.

  3. The smell of cinnamon makes me yearn for my grandmother. Memories are most certainly an important part of who we are.
