The simplicity of my day to day.
|PROMPT July 25th
We were all children at one time. Some much longer ago than others. Tonight, write about the things you loved doing when you were a child.
Reading, reading reading. I would read anything I could to get my hands on. My best days were going into the bookshop with my mother. The smell of new books still brings childhood memories back to me.
And going to the library. Our local library was in the church basement I can still feel the excitement and anticipation when walking down the steep slope and entering the brown door and entering the hushed sanctity of our library.
I loved all the usual childhood games. Marbles, playing chasy, skipping with a rope and dressing up and pretending to be anything and anyone. Climbing trees and watching my family being unaware I could see them. Especially my brothers. Of course being the only girl I was roped in to be part of their games too.
