Powerful Memory - a Journey I Remember.

Extracts from this document...


POWERFUL MEMORY- A JOURNEY I REMEMBER This journey, I wanted it to go on forever. Well at the beginning anyway. We were heading Manchester, all of us would be caged in the car for long hours waiting to get to our destination. We had left London in the early morning, all of us eager to arrive at our final destination, I was very excited. The day progressed. The atmosphere in the car became deadly silence, and the distance on the map didn't seem to change with the passing hours.

We were just coming up the drive where we were staying with relatives. The door opened and every single relative I remember (and some that I didn't) came running down the drive.
