For some odd reason when Erin was driving me home this evening I got to thinking about people I haven't talked to in ages and truly lost touch with even though they were huge influences on me when I was growing up. For some reason I was reflecting on some really early memories of a babysitter I had before I was the age of 5, her name was anita and she had two sons who were in high school named kurt and for the life of me I can't remember the other ones name cuz I never saw him when I got older. Anita and her two boys spoiled me, according to my mother. I don't remember how they spoiled me but for some reason I think some of my He-Man toys come from that family. The only memories I have are watching Alf (OMG I loved Alf when I was little) in Anita's big living room, it probably was normal size but I was little so a lot of rooms were huge, and the two boys heading off somewhere wearing their Oakridge football jerseys either school or to a game, not sure which.
Years later I would get re-acquainted with Kurt as he substitute taught when I was in high school. And years later I would see him from time to time, and though I don't remember much he said to me when I was real little I will always remember that whenever see him now he asks how I am doing as well as how my mom is doing, I always like that of old family friends when they ask that, to me it shows they truly care its one of the disadvantages of living so from home, I don't really have any family friends anymore except relatives who live in the area, I usually don't see them though.
Anyway, I like these reflecting it helps me capture memories that are distant and fading and preserving to reflect on later in life. Ever since character actor Stephen Tobolowsky started his podcast, The Tobolowsky Files, I have really been meaning to write down stories and memories from my life before the memory fades too far into the past, checkout the podcast they are quite enjoyable and inspiring, I hope my reflection blogs can do the same. Until next time, have a great day.
