My Definition Of Childhood

Posted by on Wednesday, January 18th, 2012 with 0 comments

Childhood is a term used to denote a patchwork of memories, fabricated and designed wholly by a single mind, and imbued with a magical wistfulness known as nostalgia. The brain creates childhood by recalling and interpreting its memories, sometimes honestly and sometimes not. It forges childhood with a protective instinct, conforming it to the emotional needs of the individual. Although childhood is not a neat construction, the mind automatically organizes it into a treelike structure, with central themes branching off into events and moments, the smallest of which make up the jagged outer edges of the leaves. Few people truly examine their childhood, but all are guided by it. It is the least tangible, but the most powerful, influence in a person’s life.
