  2. And if I am harassed by others……I really like this. I think we all have something in our younger years reminiscent of that old house and those feelings it evokes when thoughts thereof return. πŸ™‚

    That was a lovely journey, pin pointing of emotions of the time and that place in time. This had some really enjoyable phrasing, especially re maturity from whether it is smoking to fooling around. Also this was a nice unfolding of the old and new and changes therein.

  4. oh yes, the house, off the way, down the path… I can’t remember exactly where it is even, or what I did there, why they let me in, and how I left… All i know is, i remember a house— somewhat like that.

    Thanks Elan, really enjoyed this. a little unsolicited SoC response.

  6. I absolutely love it! πŸ™‚
    You describe many feelings that I have, too, at times.
    “I liked it that way – Wild, let loose, gray”
    All these immature feelings that were so important and all-consuming when we were young; and we still remember how it was…

  7. Plotting, smoking, music, laughter, talking, passing the bottle of cheap wine, sharing secrets, running away to THAT place so we could return to home. ….YES! Thanks for bring those memories back.
