I’m the youngest of five kids. My brother and sisters are between four and nine years  older than me. 

         Recently, we were all together, talking about when we were kids – except – they were kids BEFORE I was born!!!!!  I listened to them talk about the fun they had – you know, the day to day things kids do to amuse themselves.  I related to that because I did stuff like that too.  Some of the things they talked about I remembered but then they talked about before I was born.  I listened raptly.

         BUT THEN IT HIT ME!!!   I WASN’T THERE!!!   I DID NOT EXIST!!! THERE WAS NO ME!!!   A WHOLE PERSON THAT DID NOT EXIST YET!!!   WOW!!!   THEY WERE THERE BUT I WAS NOT!!! 

         THIS was a real revelation to me!!!   I was stunned!!!

     WHERE WAS I???!!!???
