my sister and i were reminiscencing about our childhoods, we loved pulling pranks on people. i remember sitting in the car for hours under neath a blanket and as my parents drove off for work i would suprise them, which was never appreciated. i guess now it wasnt very safe. puh hahaha. or we would do facials and wait for people to come into our house and just start screaming. ahhh. no wonder kids dont have any stress. they just let it all out all the time.

Lovelee,
My earliest/first memory is also untrue. I distinctly remember my mum driving into the caravan park we used to soend summers at in Castlegregory Co. Kerry. She was driving my grandmothers car and had an elephant strapped onto the roof. It took years for my parents to convince me this did not happen. I haven't been the same since.

Ken,
I have a memory like that, too. My Dad's boss' daughter took me to an amusement park in Montreal when I was about 4. The next day I told my mother that we climbed all the way up to the top of the Jacques Cartier bridge, which is the bridge used to get to the park.

The memory was clear in my head: me and the babysitter, climbing up the green scaffolding on our hands and knees till we reached the peak, hundreds of metres in the air. I was so upset that my mother didn't believe me.

There must be some child-psychology term for when kids still confuse reality and dreams, but I just remember how silly I felt when I realized it couldn't be true.

I get most of my best inspirations (or are they just "cosmic messages"?), when laying on a beach.

Consciously, my earliest memories are from around the age of 3. However subconscious glimpses possibly take me back into previous lives.
