Because everything is new, and we're so open to life, the memories of childhood have a certain magic to them. This is a great month to play off a childhood memory -- create art from it, tell a story based on it or write a song about it.

What poignant stories are there to be told from the dark memories many of us carry. As Isak Dinesen so famously said, "I think all sorrows can be borne if you put them into a story or tell a story about them."
