Im my life: memory

My memory allows full sequential replay for a few days back.  Go back a few weeks and the snippets are frequent but the continuity is gone. The surviving memories - images, sounds, and sometimes smells - become gradually fewer and fewer the further back I journey. 

The memory "film" of my first 5 years has faded to white, with only a few seemingly random images remaining.  Perhaps they are significant. Perhaps they are merely memorable.  Nevertheless these explicit memories are precious to me because of a universal measure of value - rarity.
