I’ve written a string of serious posts and they did bring in the readers, but today it’s sunny outside and I’m in a jokey mood, so I can’t make my mind focus on serious things at all.
I keep drifting back to the times when I had no cares, when it didn’t matter if it rained or the sun shined, when I would whine to be allowed to stay out and play with my friends ‘just a little longer’ and my dreams were full of new games to play that no one had thought about before.
