time travelling

There are some places that transport me instantly to another time. This is one of them. It’s an alleyway near my elementary school, behind the houses of a couple of childhood friends. Their families no longer live here, their houses have been remodeled, but the alleyway remains the same.

  1. Ah! Your mention of playing hide-and-seek past dark reminded me of my childhood. That was so much fun, and was so much easier to hide. A different time, hey? It’s likely not very safe for kids to be doing that today…

    1. Those long summer evenings were wonderful for games. Yes, definitely easier to hide! Happily, the area around Mom’s house hasn’t changed a lot. Still a friendly place.
