Blue Hawaii

It is Friday….I’d be swimming at Waikiki…..went there directly after school. I lived the life of Gidget without her “life”. I was so tan…..this was way before sun tan machines and the knowledge of sun exposure. Life was so innocent. As I was a bit chunky…..I loved the sun…always thought it made me look skinny!? Mind of an 8 year old is a bitch!

Now it is Friday, I’m watching “Friends” and worrying about a missile strike from North Korea. Innocence is so precious. An amazing field was across from our house…we would play on the field after dinner….baseball, tag, hide and seek …corny but fun. You could smell the fragrance of the flowers as we played. It was fun, the fragrance was real… didn’t have to buy it in a perfume bottle.

I’m yearning for days gone by as I seek to justify a caregiver role and my parents getting older. I want them back.
