Suddenly it was snatched from me! like a thief in the night, chaos came and stole all that I knew! Lost in a storm that seemed to dim even the brightest of moments. I thought I had lost it forever. But as I sit here with the rays of the afternoon sun cast across my back yard, I feel the warm embrace of a childhood returned. I find inspiration and hope from the smallest of things. I feel as if I were writing in a room with Langston Hughes. At every, moment my surroundings provide the most elegant of views. Every detail is a part of a masterpiece in motion! This is what I longed for, this is my childhood returned!
