You know that feeling you get when you visit a place from your childhood and it is so much smaller than it seemed back when you were young and the world was a vast mysterious place and when you were there that place became the whole world because you were so good at living in the moment And you go back as you are now and its completely different Its unexciting Before elementary school started I went to a daycare while my parents worked In the mornings we would be released onto a playground with an empire of meandering tunnels and slides and jungle gyms on an endless sea of playground pebbles that got stuck between our toes and sandals My favorite part was a fake fire truck in the middle of all of it but to our young minds it was as real as the fire truck in the station down the street and we could drive that baby anywhere in the world we wanted to go Sometimes we fought fires sometimes we just travelled Well I was in that neighborhood one evening while visiting home and there was the playground with the jungle gyms and the fire truck but it was not the place that I knew as a child There was no endless sea of pebbles but a mere courtyard of them surrounded by a fence that was small enough to step over There were two slides and one tunnel and some monkey bars Not the giant metal castles that we lost ourselves in back then The biggest surprise was the fire truck as it was hardly a truck at all Rather it was a bunch of connected red poles that made the outline of a fire truck with nailed in wheels and a steering wheel that barely turned I guess our imaginations had always filled in those lines I was shocked because everything was just so much smaller than I remembered
