"But he who dares not grasp the thorn Should never crave the rose" Anna Bronte
I remember a lot from my childhood. I have a bit of a photographic memory, and I can remember things only by images. If I can't think of an image that goes with a memory, I can't access the memory. That might be true for a lot of people.
One of my memories from 2nd grade was of a book that we read where a child drew on the walls with chalk. Our teacher had us do an activity where we used white crayon on black construction paper. I remember loving it but we could only use white crayons. So I decided to use white, pink and green today.
If your curious about the book, I don't really remember what it was about, but I found the title. Its called "The Chalk Box Kid" by Clyde Robert Bulla.
