    Then And Now

    I grew up in northeastern Kentucky in the mid 50's/early 60's..     We never locked our doors.  The worst thing that happened was the neighbor kids "broke in  (aka opened the door)" to our basement and took spray paint to "decorate" my dad's new '58 Oldsmobile.  Their...

    The Time Of Innocence

    You know, I always listen to my friends telling me what a crappy childhood they had, and how NOW they have a much better life than they did when they were kids. Oh, yeah. I listen. I nod my head. And sometimes I really wish that was the case with me as well. I wish I had a...

    The Pencil Box

    I had nothing to worry about!

    Everything was perfect. No stress,no pressure or anything. I still remember thinking at 6 years old I would be a princess happily ever after with my prince. I miss thinking life was a simple happy place. I miss being naive and not worrying about anything!

    Those Were the Days

    There's so much I miss from my childhood. I miss being naive and ignorant of the world. Not knowing about how cruel the world can be.  I miss when hanging out with friends, no one saw color or wealth. I miss the days of being innocent and innocence was all I knew. And most...

    Scents Of Childhood

    Reflecting back on what it was like to live in a small town in Michigan in the 1980's, my stomach starts to churn in that wistful way and my focus shifts towards comparisons. What comparisons? Then to now. I search for words to explain...how it feels to reflect on my past...

    I can't miss something I don't remember much.
