Let's start somewhere significant... When I was 9 I was a romantic schoolboy. All doe-eyed over little schoolgirls with freckles and pigtails and ribbons and bows. I'd deny it, of course, being somewhat bashful and shy. Then I went to an all-boys school, where little girls did not dwell. Only strange boys, including myself, who grew up ever so slowly.
Perhaps I am still that romantic boy who smiles on rainy days, splashing in puddles and reading books by the fire. After all, I spend my days playing make-believe with other like-minded fools. It's a hobby, but it's more than a hobby. It's something that takes me back to being that little boy for a few moments, seeing the world in a different way, where excitement and mystery lie around every corner.
This be my tale. My 3rd Blog, different to the first two I've written. I be its slave. If you dare, read on, and I pray it is not overly pretentious, not too much of a bore, but holds that glimmer of childhood which many of us struggle to find in the World today.
