Sweet Recollection

Which good memories are better — the recent and vivid ones, or those that time has covered in a sweet haze?

I love them both – the recent and vivid ones which you can replay in your mind over and over again. I have had a few good things happen this year and I count them as very precious to me. I wish I could experience them over and over again and again. Since they don’t happen like that, I play them over and over in my mind and treasure them. It’s good to have photos to remember them and look at them and relive them in your head.

How about the older ones that, as the prompt says, time has covered in a sweet haze. You look back and you smile and wonder how silly those days seem and yet how sweet and wonderful they feel in your memories. Was I ever that young and innocent, was I ever that full of wonder and cheer and awe of things in life? Was I ever so content to just enjoy the silly, simple things of life? Simple to me and us now but which meant a great deal for me when I was younger.

I love them all. They are what I fondly recall and when my time comes and I died they will be those that I will look back on in my dying last breaths.
