What I love in this image, is not that you can pinpoint the decade in which these things expired, but the feeling of going back in time to a place of freedom and lightness that in our current day our children only really know at a tender young age they will likely never remember.
Staying out until twilight when only our parents voices would ring into the dusk to call us home.
Playing on monkey bars for hours on end, trying to master a cherry drop.
Playing Capture the Flag with a group of neighborhood kids time after time until night had fallen and the moon had risen into the night sky.
Staying up all night laughing and giggling just for the fun of it with no distractions (who could you call at 2 am other prank calls?)
That feeling, the one of the air, the light, the laughter, the time and feeling of just being. Not caring what was next and no way to find out. That feeling helps make today ‘mynewfavoriteday.’
What memories do you have that are aligned with this and make today ‘yournewfavoriteday.’
