Memories from my childhood

Memories from my childhood

  • Skipping  to school in new, red leather shoes on a warm spring morning – the soles make most pleasant sounds against the sidewalk.
  • Sledding in winter from the hill above our house; hands frozen; running into the house and holding my hands over a warm, wood burning stove; unbelievable pain; crying.
  • No eclectic power in our house on blackout evenings; lighted candles; stories; magical shadows on the walls.
  • Pressed blue school uniform; new crochet lace collar my mother made; fist fight with my best friend; torn lace collar; face dirty from dust and tears.
  • Two dolls; one old and beat up, with a hole cut in her mouth; the other new and untouched; both named Rose.
  • Climbing the cherry tree in our yard with my sister; picking  big, red, sweet cherries; eating some; ornamenting ourselves by making earrings, necklaces, crowns with others.
  • Running very fast down the hill on a warm spring evening; two older cousins holding my hands; flying.
