Not the Past Itself

As a child, I was drawn to places and things abandoned by adults. I did not seek these for what they were. I sought them for what I imagined them to be. Perhaps all children live this way, even some adults, especially those who want to relive old happiness or settle old scores. For it is not the past itself that we seek, but what we imagine about it.
