Welcome to May 4 Today’s prompt is: Your earliest memory
My earliest memory is a door.
Not just any door, but a front door with three panels and a sideways oval window in the top one.
No-one in the family lived in a house with such a door, yet it was vivid in my mind.
I was three, and for years afterwards everyone thought it was just a figment of my imagination, something I had dreamed.
Some twenty years later my mother, sister and I were going through some old photographs, and there was the door of my memory.
Mum knew exactly where it was and who had lived there, an aunt I had only ‘met’ once before my uncle’s divorce when I was about five.
No-one remembers her though.
