Many people agree that childhood memory is one thing that can surely affect your future. In fact, there are quite a lot of famous people who can be who they are this time because of the things that happened in the past. Some of them are even using all of those memories and experiences to make something great. One of the example is Ivor Cutler, one poet from Glasgow Scotland. Many people saw him as one eccentric artist because of many things. However, not all of the people realized that all of the things that he did on his grown up stage were caused by the thing that happened in his childhood.
For your information, the childhood of Ivor Cutler cannot be considered as something easy. That is because he was born on the Jewish family on the area where Jewish was not that acceptable. As an addition to that, Ivor Cutler was the only kid on the family for some years until his little brother was born. At the time when his little brother was born, he felt the feeling of displacement because most of the times of his parents were given for the newly born little brother of him. That was also the time when he personally stated that he was screwed up. Fortunately, he was able to manage his emotion and anger into something better. that was also the time when he realized that he had the sense of arts in his own heart that finally lead him into someone who were creative enough to write many things, especially poems.
When he grew up, Ivor Cutler also had an experience as a navigator in Royal Air Force, which is not something that many people were able to do. Unfortunately, that thing did not take a long time because he had a problem that they call dreaminess. Even though that was the thing that many people known, he had a feeling that the job was not his own path at that time because his passions were related with words, poets, and lyrics. That is just some of the small examples of how your childhood can simply affect your future. Fortunately, in the case of Ivor Cutler, he was able to manage all of those angers into the creation that many people might have never done. That was also one of the reasons why he made an album with full of his childhood memories called Life in a Scotch Sitting Room.
