I started a blog about childhood rememberings lately ... you can see more at https://lookbackincandour.wordpress.com/
Remembering is hard ... especially from younger years. Are the memories from photographs, from tales told to you later in life? Or real snapshots in your mind? Perhaps it's a mixture of them all.
Having been in avoidance of diarying for many years my solution is to recall my memories as visuals.
I believe this will be a worthwhile journey, if difficult at times.
