I am constantly amazed by how my perceptions from when I was younger are in error. I also believe that this might be the norm for most! At least it’s the norm for me.
I went into an abandoned house this weekend that was the home of my Aunt and Uncle and the vacation destination for the rest of us; and I remember it as a massive sprawling house that now I see it is really a quite small quaint 3 bedroom cottage.
I have travelled on highways and got to most destinations in a mere 2 to 3 hour’s and not the painful wagon journeys of my youth.
How much else am I getting wrong? After 15 it was alcohol, between 11 and 15 it was grief… before that some combination of childish delusions and some reality….
I may owe more apologies than I realized.
