‘afraid of change’

So today I went for a bike ride after school. Cruised around the neighborhood for a little while, nothing special. Decided to do something I hadn’t in a while, and went to the gas station for some candy and a drink. Took it over to the playground and watched some Little-Leaguers warming up. Just as I’m laying the hillside, doing nothing, thinking how nice it was when this is what I did all summer and how nice it was to finally be laying on a hill again, who should walk by but Mark! So we walked back to his house, where I left my bike and he got a snack, then we went back to watch the kids play baseball. It was fun, half because they were so terrible and half because it reminded me of part of my childhood that I had kinda forgotten about. So, today was a day for thinking about being a kid. It’s not a bad thing to spend an afternoon thinking about.
