Ode to a Playground
Did not really have a favorite playground
nor play place nor playmates.
I preferred to play alone as I had no siblings.
I was used to keeping to myself.
Nor did I have any imaginary friends.
My favorite toy was probably Lego.
Anything that can be built with instructions,
yes, written instructions.
Actually I loved reading the instructions more than the toy itself.
So probably what I really loved was reading.
My mom gave me those condensed Ladybird books
which I really really loved even though they where tattered
Thank god for imagination, without it, no child can ever survive growing up.
