Ok, sort of a random thread here, but what is the first thing you can remember. Lately I've just been remembering random event from earlier in my life. The earliest memory I can think of is being in a crib at night in New York (where I lived until I was 5) with the moonlight shining in. I wasn't very big at the time because I remember seeing this red pillow I had with sail boats on it seemed pretty large to me. It's actually only at the most 12" square. I know, not a very interesting story, but I think it's pretty cool I can remember back that far- I wish I could think back further. I have a friend that hit his head in a skiing accident and can't remember anything before 6th grade It seems most people don't remember their early years very well even without head trauma.
