Three Memories:

Carried on my father’s shoulders; Staring saucer-eyed at the work of insects; Walking up the hill I looked over a garden wall and saw pale fabric hanging from the branches of a tree.

The images portray three distinct memories, but they resisted remaining separated. I wanted to hold them down and place them next to each other, seeing them merge into a continuum—a train of thought.

The three memories were made at different times in my life. The first memory is of being a toddler, carried on my father’s shoulders and getting caught up in all the leaves. The second memory is of staring saucer-eyed at the work of insects. I remember the intense fascination they held for me. The third memory is of walking up the hill past a walled garden and seeing pale fabric hanging from the branches of a tree. This lodged in my mind as a quiet mystery.
