MY EAR­LI­EST MEM­ORY

Friday - - Up Close And Personal -

I am in an old­fash­ioned coach­pram; one with a gi­ant bub­bly hood like in Mary

Pop­pins. My great aunt Rose is push­ing it down a sandy al­ley and I can hear the sound of her shoes crunch­ing. I can see her face. I can’t walk or talk yet. I’m not the­o­riz­ing about any­thing. I’m purely see­ing. I re­mind my­self of try­ing to sim­ply see, just like that, as of­ten as pos­si­ble.
