A Childhood Summer

      I love this small collection of photographs.. Its amazing how an image so simple and everyday can stir up so many memories, thoughts and desires, sort of like a domino effect. It reminds me of an idyllic period of my childhood, a vague hazy memory, made up of various images like the photos I’ve shown. I can however, distinctly remember the way I felt, complete bliss! I can almost feel the sun on my face again and I can hear laughter. The air is filled with the scent of pollen and fresh bread. There’s a farmhouse nearby behind huge old oaks hung with the occasional rope swing. I’m with someone, a friend and we’re playing in the field, our heads barely reaching over the long golden barley. It is a feeling I yearn for again, a desire, an ultimate goal, and I find myself wondering if it’s a realistic goal. Is it possible to feel as carefree and happy as we did during childhood? Can we achieve that simplicity and innocence again?
