The brain is an amazing thing, what memories it holds. And junk.
This morning shortly after getting up some lyrics came to mind and I realized that last time I heard the song was in grade school. I was not sure of the name of the song but I tried to remember more words to it and figured out with some remembered rhymes it was called “Animal Fair”. I looked it up on youtube and yeah it was an actual song. A children’s song I remembered from the very early 60’s.
I have thought about this. The bits of lyrics that came to mind in a child’s voice amazed me. It was a reminder that there are many memories in there that I thought were lost. I have very few conscious memories of much of my childhood and youth. But the memories are in there. Stuck in hidden files that open up at the oddest of times.
