Neat, Ron Olesko.

Someone above mentioned that some people remember the process of being born. I don't doubt it. If the mass of people can do something, there will always be individuals who go beyond.

I've always known that if I held still long enough I would remember when my youngest brother was born- I was a little less than two years old so I should remember it consciously but I never have. Yet. I know he was born at home although I don't know at what time of day.

I remember though when my mother was pregnant with him. We were in church and I was sitting beside her on the bench even though I used to sit on her lap. But in this memory she had hardly any lap at all so that I had to sit beside her. (It's also one of my favorite memories, because at a certain point when I started swinging my feet, my mother gently laid her arm across my legs in a gesture filled with love and no acrimony. And I knew I had learned not to do that.)
