Path Of Reminiscence


Sitting here at Encanto Park, remembering when I was
just eleven - the first time I ever came here with
my Mom and Dad.
Favorite ride was the airplane that went around and
up and down.
Still remember the feeling it gave me back then.
Seeing the roller coaster, same one - going around
in a little circle.
I was afraid way back when because I'd never been on
one before.
After the third time around, I finally settled down -
then didn't want to get off.
So many memories falling gently upon my mind.
Feeling the feelings and senses still within my
photographic mind of being with my parents and sisters.
A wonderful path of reminiscence on a day of beautiful
memories being made with my seven year old
Granddaughter and her Dad.
