Psychologists have long delved into people’s memories trying to identify early events that influenced later behavior or choices.
I clearly remember attending a birthday party when I was four years old.
Several games were played and when I won one, the prize was a very small pocket-sized book about trees. All of the pictures were in full color and I spent hours turning the pages, amazed to see flowering trees.
My favorite was one with big white flowers that I now realize was a Southern Magnolia.
