I've just taken on a new writing project which is linked with the past. It's surprising how much you can remember when you are with people whom you knew in days gone by. In this case, more than fifty years! The problem is locating those folk who attended your school, church and places where you loved to dance, not forgetting friends you've managed to keep in touch with. Family members with good memories are important and they seem to like reminiscing (which keeps the old brain working)! The best way to gather material for your "Book of Reflections" is to start NOW and begin talking to people around you; better still, I've found the internet's social media pages more than helpful.
Next week, I will be meeting a group of people from the past and it will be fun to see if we recognise each other. Now, who could she be? Circa 1963 - Location Barking Town Hall.
