100 Words: Memories

Some memories are so powerful that they can never be dimmed.

I remember seeing Raiders of the Lost Ark for the first time -- December 9, 1981.

I remember, with clarity, the first time I met my wife -- on a pile of laundry.

I remember hearing Jordan cry for the first time -- it didn't come as quickly as I thought it should.

I remember distinctly the last conversation I had with my father -- it was ordinary.

I remember the taste of a Dole Whip, at Disneyland.

I remember the way my childhood smelled -- like aspen and pine and sage and dust.
