In Charles Dickens’ much-loved story, A Christmas Carol, the heartless old miser Ebenezer Scrooge receives visits on Christmas Eve by three different spirits. The Ghost of Christmas Past takes him down memory lane to recall happier times and hopes for the future that he once had, before the pursuit of riches consumed his life.
MEMORY LANE will be our prompt for today. Is this a place you love to wander down, recalling happy times with family and friends, or do you feel it’s best to avoid looking back? Maybe you’d like to show us a scene from your own Memory Lane?
