Journey back in time with me

A quiet time, oh, can’t you see?

No internet, no political lies,

No news that constantly horrifies

Travel paths we trod when young

Friends, games, having fun

Make believe all is well

Wave your wand – a magic spell

    • Thanks, Grace. I wish it would still be like that. We just get bombarded with so much unrest all over the world, these days, it gets to be too much. I’m sure things were happening when we were young, too, but we didn’t know of it nearly as much.

    • Thanks, Gayle! If only we had appreciated it more back then, but we were in a hurry to grow up, it seems, too. If we could go back now, we’d realize it…or be bored, because we’re so used to instant gratification now. If we could erase all the bad stuff, then that would be great!

      • πŸ™‚ I suppose we should just enjoy the time we are in at the moment. No regrets for the past, and the future will be whatever it will be. πŸ™‚ Hope your weekend is off to a good start! πŸ™‚

    • Hi, Sanaa! It seems wherever we all are in the world, we all wish for those days of simplicity again. Hope all is good with you, and you are settling down at your new home. ❀

    • Hey, Bjorn! You’d not like to have the so called ‘good old days’ back? There were definitely bad things going on in the world when we were kids, but we didn’t hear of as much as we do today. We did have to grow up, and that was as it should be.

  1. Oh if we could just wave that magic wand! Even those in childhood today are surrounded by heavy loads and pictures and news that should not be happening. I remember when the toughest thing I had to face was learning to ride a 26″ bicycle when I was just a first grader. Those were the days of only 1 bike in your childhood….and you grew into it rather than getting a new size as you grew! πŸ™‚ That’s why I’ve always been a good “standing up” kind of bike rider πŸ™‚

    • Hi, Lillian! I know what you mean. The too big bicycle, I had one of those, too! πŸ™‚ We didn’t get a new one as soon as a new version came out. Fun to remember! πŸ™‚

  2. Not entirely sure that those days gone by were quite that blissful and free of anxiety, but it certainly feels that way from here… a heartfelt cry of a poem, I thought!

    • Thanks, Marina! There were bad things in the world back then, but we were too young to realize much of it. It would be nice to get a break from it all for awhile now,

  3. Make believe all is well – I remember as I grew up I couldn’t believe reality sometimes.Now it feels like we’re living in a Batman movie with no Batman. Ignorance is bliss.

  4. Yes, I’ll take a ticket for that journey. I feel so privileged to have had a childhood running around outside, appreciating nature and making face to face friendships. I don’t think technology has helped humanity as much as it has hindered it.

    • We did have a great childhood, didn’t we! Not nearly so many worries as the kids have today. At least that how it seems to me. Back in the day, we could run around the neighborhood, making friends, playing our make believe games, and having fun. Now kids have to be warned about all the things that could be bad that they have to be protected from. Wish we could have continued those carefree days.

    • Hi, charley! I know…too short a time to go back to the easy days of our childhood. Each of us have our own remembrances, and it’s good to think back on them from time to time. πŸ™‚

      • I haven’t been on a bike in forever. I’d probably fall off if I tried it now. It’s good to look back now and again, but you’re right, we have it pretty good now, too.
