ONE CHILDHOOD MEMORY I WOULD GO BACK AND RELIVE

This is hard because I have hardly any childhood memories (repression? Who's to say).
  1. I do have a feeling from when I was a kid that I'd love to relive.
  2. I moved to a new neighborhood when I was eight. It's a development, and it was brand new (our house was built for us) so all of the neighbors were new too.
  3. This was great news, bc in my old neighborhood everyone was older.
  4. So that first week I made friends with a girl five houses down. Her name was Carly and she was three years younger than me, but we were good friends for five or six years.
  5. But what I want to relive is that summer, with my new friend and the endless possibilities of the new neighborhood.
  6. Riding bikes down hills with plots of land on either side, houses unbuilt
  7. Swimming in a new pool with kids of all ages
  8. Going to the playground at dusk and feeling grown up for being allowed out so late
  9. Freedom as a kid is the best kind of freedom, even when it's not real
