I also remember, when I was first learning to read, thinking about how strange words and language were. Something about words didn't make sense to me, and I couldn't quite understand why people would use these strange things for communication. To this day, I often think in a way that does not involve words-- more of a feeling, or an instinct, but something that does not translate to human language.
And I remember many times thinking, "I want to go home," even when I was at home. Not really knowing what I meant by that, just feeling like I wasn't truly at home, that home was a place far more comfortable and natural-feeling.
Anyway, just wanted to share. Has anyone else had interesting childhood memories that seem "different" somehow?
