Larry Love Memories
What memories typically stay with us the longest or tend to be burned into our minds? Fun times as shown in the picture? Abuse or not so fun times? Regrets of things we have done that we should not have done? Memories of being with family when we go on trips to see the ocean, National Parks, major events in our lives such as baptisms, first communion, weddings,funerals, Christmas, music, special birthday parties, first kiss, first love, being scared, getting in accidents, Nature, Religious events, work events such as first jobs and other memories of work, parties, traveling, military service, voluntary service, TV shows as a child or even adult, memories of food, happy events, tragic events, deaths, births, memories of cars or motorcycles, hobbies that your parents had and included you in and the list goes on.
My first kiss was in the middle of a field where I was playing with my best friend Launie Sperry when I was 9 years old. (~1973) I don't remember all the details but I remember the feelings, I remember her breath and how it felt. I felt safe in the middle of this field and so did she and we were just playing and I don't remember why we kissed because there was no pressure to do anything like that at home and we did not see it in the movies and there was no internet so all I can say is it came naturally. I laugh when I think about it now, being 9 years old is so young. I talk to my children now about all sorts of things and in 1973 neither one of us was thinking about sex or anything to do with it. We kissed as innocently as could be and it did not ruin the friendship as it sometimes does to kiss.
