What a memory starter...

Wandering through the VV Boutique, I rounded a corner and stumbled upon this brightly coloured memory starter...

All of a sudden a cascade of memories hit me and long forgotten emotions, both good and hard came with it

I called Beans over to show her what had struck me so strongly and she nonchalantly replied...  that's cool...

It was SO much more than cool... to me... 

and as I walked away from this powerful toy I felt a kinship to the souls around me that whispered under their breath... I always WANTED that as a child!
