The only thing more anticipated than Christmas morning in our house was the arrival of the —
Sears Wish Book.
Of course there were only a handful of pages my brothers and sisters and I cared about — and yet —
Night after night we huddled cheek-to-cheek on the brown nubby couch, stray springs popping out here and there, tell tale signs of our bouncing and banging or rocking when— well —
There was nothing to hold our attention like — the wish book of wide-eyed imagination and un-adult-erated glee —
And — we were —
Deeply engrossed in —
I love the image of our 10 pajama feet lined up on the old couch — none of them touching the ground.
As it should be when —
You’re walking on air.
