Journaling Prompt – Take A Trip Down Memory Lane

March 11th, 2009 by Avital

Lately we’ve been dealing with memories here on creativity Prompt. Wikipedia defines a Memory as “an organism’s mental ability to store, retain and recall information”.

Last week we captured a memory that has never been. What we basically did was to store information in our minds, regardless of it’s authenticity… It certainly isn’t what people traditionally refer to as a memory, but it falls into the scope of the definition.

This week we are going to deal with another component of the definition, which is the “recalling” part. More specifically, we are about to write down our “first memories of…”

So if you feel like participating in this week’s journaling prompt, answer the following questions with the first memory that comes to your mind –

  1. What is your first memory? Crawling in the house and grabbing my uncle’s white shirt with my dirty fingers… My uncle is a very good person that cannot harm a fly, but his loud voice can sure frighten a crawling child 🙂
  2. What was the first TV program you remember watching? The Littl’ Bits
  3. What is the first song you remember hearing? A lullaby.
  4. What is the first meal you remember having? (I don’t think it’s possible to actually remember having milk or formula…) I remember eating my grandmother’s boiled chicken with sweet cabbage and mash potatoes. I also remember my father’s sour cream with bananas and strawberries.
  5. What is the first book you remember reading? Dana is sleeping. Dana is waking up… (In Hebrew: “Dana Nama. Dana Kama”.)
  6. What is the first painting you remember drawing? A house with a flower and a girl that rise above the house and a huge sun with a happy face.
  7. What is the earliest family vacation you remember? Visiting the alligators’ farm at Hamat Gader.
  8. What is the first toy you remember having? My doll Nikki (it was a male doll and I wouldn’t leave it alone for a second).
  9. Who was the first teacher you remember? (including kindergarten) Clara, the kindergarten teacher’s assistant.
  10. What was the first pet you remember having? A cat. We never had pets long enough to name them… Both my parents love animals, but not at their house.
