Memories are part of who you are. You always take them with you. On the basis of those recollections most people are able to tell their history. But my memories of the first eight years of my life are very patchy. I can’t revisit persons and places from that period.
On average you create five memories a day. 5 memories a day, 365 days a year, for 8 years adds up to 14,600 memories.
