What do you bring with you everywhere you go? (except keys, walets, purses…. the usual)
First of all, thank you guys for being here. I must say that, today was harder than usual. I thank you as well for letting me know about these books. But there was only one possible winner, and I choose her because there was more than the title of the books.
The winner is:
The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton….. I must have read it 14 times! I wasn’t real young but I was around 13-14 years old. Prior to that, probably Lassie Come Home. I was a sucker for kids and animals. Both very sad books.
As a child I always read any book twice, because I wanted it to stay for a long time in my head. But there were books which I read more than twice such as The Lord of the Rings or some of the Harry Potter’s, The mysterious island, 80 days around the world among others.
What book have you read more than once when you were a child?
The winner is:
My thoughts… When a detail is triggered, in our current setting, (through one of our senses), that is similar to a former memory or remnant of a memory, our brain re-creates that scene again.
My answer :
Some places, some events seem to have happened before, because life IS a routine and some events repeat themselves every once in a while, if not every few years. Maybe the brain interprets those events as if they’ve been lived in the same place just once; when we believe that we’re living a déjà-vu.
What’s your theory on déjà vu?
