Friday Freeday: Thursday Thoughts

I'm making this a habit, aren't I? lol

But seriously, I was trying to figure out since last night what to write about, but being sick since Monday night, my head's been on the foggy can't-breathe-through-my-nose kick. Fortunately, a random thought from Mindy McGinnis made me think of the weird dreams I used to have as a kid.

I lived in a townhouse complex in a small not-even-on-the-map town in Southeastern PA (Yardley) where many of the buildings were connected by breezeways. As kids, my sister and our friends used to hang out in them because they echoed and were, slightly breezy. As I said on Mindy's page, I think they sucked all the breezes into themselves somehow.

That being said, I always had a love for the fantastical, and I'm honestly just now realizing it. This one was definitely because of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe and the idea of getting into another world through something as simple as your closet. When I was a kid, I used to dream about being able to go to another world or even to Delaware where my mom's family lives through one of the breezeways in the complex. I'd know which one it was because it would have lasers criss-crossing through it if you looked at it from a particular angle, and I'd always have to reach it before the lasers disappeared.

So, thanks, Mindy! Pleasant memories. :)


  1. I think you have the makings of a kid's story in there!

    1. Dreams usually are where my stories start, so that would be cool to stop and think about! :D

  2. Sorry you're sick! Lots of people seem to be lately. Hope you're starting to feel better!

    I've always had a love for the fantastical, too. What a great topic for Friday Freeday!

  3. I'm sorry to hear that you're sick!

  4. You had/have a great imagination! Love the lasers. I had a pathway to a secret world too as a kid - strangely it was through a No Dumping sign :P

    1. It was my subconscious lol. I was no where near that imaginative when I was awake. ;)
