memories from the past

From Still Mostly True by Brian Andreas

This reminds me of the small carnivals that came to town, that my dad would take me to as a kid. The ferris wheel and cotton candy were my two favorite things. (I still love cotton candy)
They were small carnivals...but a big deal to me.

Every adult needs good childhood memories to escape to from time to time. I have quite a few. I'm thankful for that.

“For in every adult there dwells the child that was, and in every child there lies the adult that will be.”

― John Connolly, The Book of Lost Things

that quote is amazing! and, i agree with you completely, good childhood memories are so important. it always fascinates me to think of what moments we do remember, and i wonder what moments my little nephews will recall someday.

hope you're having a good week!

Hi Jo!

Childhood should be magical for everyone. I am betting your nephew is storing up lots of great memories to recall one day.

I'm having a great week!

Wishing you a great week also.
