I found this write quite serious indeed.I have now ALL my special sentimental Hhildhood toys surrounding me in glee, in my study where I stay 18 hours a day, once they lived sadly in boxes, now out in array, from puppet to baseball my life in array..
and books...ah, how they do so wrap themselves about our very soul...tightly...
Im awed at this write, A word I actually use quite seldom indeed!
