What was your favorite plaything as a child? Do you see any connection between your life now, and your favorite childhood toy?
I don’t recall what my favorite plaything was a child. I have numerous pictures of me in a red wagon that I seemed to enjoy quite a bit. I also remember a table that we had outside that looked like a huge spool for thread, yarn, or wire. I remember we would tip it on it’s side and then get up and walk on it, making it roll. Of course I liked to read and color. I have vague memories of being in my mom’s studio, on the floor coloring. I can never picture my mother in these memories, but I know she’s there in them.
About the only place I see a real connection between my childhood toys and now is with books. Reading is something I enjoy to this day as well as making up stories. I may not have inherited my mother’s artistic abilities, but apparently I inherited her love of books & writing.
