    Terrors Of Childhood

    I remember being terrified of some things in my childhood. The closet in my bedroom was one. I slept in the bed on the side closest to the closet. Something lived in there. My stuffed animals and dolls lived in there. During the day it was okay. It was my place of refuge. I had...

    Ghost Of Christmas Past

    Years ~ 1982-1988. Oxford, Pennsylvania. My grandmother's brick cottage tucked into the rolling country hillside. Snow. Grandfather's clock tick-tocking gently in the background. Exhausted from working all day on the family Christmas Tree farm. Smell of the Cedar Tree in the...

    I Had Always Good Ideas

    As the eldest, I was the leader of the gang and I always had three willing accomplices to implement my ideas. One day, when we were between 1 & 5 years old, my mother took the needle of the record player away so that we couldn't play records and scratch them. I took a sewing...

    One day Dad asked me to go fishing with him.

    I got scared. I had the feeling he was going to try to drown me. I don't know why I thought that, because so far he had never tried to kill me. But he had never taken me fishing either, so I was suspicious. When we got to the lake, he walked right up to it. "Hey, son, come here...

    that triggered a favorite childhood memory. It's not winter but it's also not summer yet. I was feeling a little chilly when I walked into the kitchen. Maybe it was just the feeling of cold floor against my bare feet that gave me a chill. My mom passed away when I was very...

    You get a group of you on the playground and the one who is 'it' turns around. He gives them 20 seconds then chases after the group and catches as many girls or boys as he can and kisses the ones he catches. The first one caught is 'it' next time. I liked kissing the girls...
