Sharp Relief

A Friend just posted on Facebook how happy her two boys were to be walking to school today. That brought some memories from a very long time ago into sharp relief for me. I don't recall many details of course, like I said, it was a very long time ago. But the feel and smells of the new school supplies, paper, pencils, crayons, rubber cement. The warmth of the sun on those September mornings. Everything was so clean and fresh. I don't often think of these days on Linden Avenue, but when I do, the memories are always so rich and pleasant. I wish I could capture them more clearly.
