Suspension of Reality

As a child we never went on vacation.  My mom saw to it that we had a great life.  We’d go swimming in the winter (we lived near a natural hot springs that has a full sized pool) ice skating in the summer, [on the same rink that was used in the 1960 winter Olympics], friends over to play or going to friends houses.  Notice no movies, no TV, and we didn’t say “I’m bored” unless we wanted to do some ‘stupid’ job!!

As an adult I totally enjoy the longer vacations.  It allows me to just be.  I like the ‘suspension of reality’ and playing make believe for a few days.
