This week’s photo prompt from Wordsmith Studio


IMG_1065 (4)

I love this picture of my neighbor.  She is so busy with her childhood.  She is all action and movement.

But I am torn. There is something else that the word “childhood” evokes.   Books.  Stories.  Adventure. Kindness.  Love.  They can all be found in children’s books.  My Mom did not save the books of my childhood. I made sure to  save my children’s books.  And there they are just as they would be when my children were little.  Waiting for a cuddle and a read.

There you are – childhood is action, movement, cuddles, and stories.

    Great photos Carol! Childhood is a contradictory mix of action, movement, and stillness. Great post.
