We remember moments…

“We do not remember days, we remember moments. The richness of life lies in memories we have forgotten.”

This quote is from Cesare Pavese (1908 – 1950), who was an Italian poet and translator. With children heading back to school, I am trying to remember all the moments that made our summer wonderful. Pavese is suggesting we won’t retain the specifics but more the feel of past days. But I have a trick – I keep journals for the kids so some of those moments that seemed so funny or sweet at the time can still be brought back. That helps but the start of their first year of school is still bittersweet…
