How can I make an expression with the least of words as the meaning above? I am a non-native speaker and having a trouble in writing in English. Please help me!

  • Have you never "pictured" something in your mind?

Sounds like you're referring to something like 'a picture of a fond memory' or something similar.

  • Hi! Yes, I think it does. Did i just miss fond part to express to that meaning? I mean should I use that (a picture of a fond memory ) like you suggested

  • @Jack0910 The changes made were 1) changing to the singular to specific a particular moment that the photo is of. 2) adding 'fond' to represent the happy emotions that are associated with that moment.

  • @Jack0910 - I can't even think of another word to run up against fond in an Ngram search of "X memories".
