B&W Photo Challenge: Friends

Looking at children enjoying playing with each other, I sometimes think how fun it would be being a child again. Having that innocence, everything prepared for you, and no big worries. But then again, you have to go through all those years again to be where you are now. Do you think going back would lessen your present burdens?

Being an adult, you have to do everything, including things that makes you worry so much you feel that either time is not enough for one day, or time is too slow. Adults have bigger problems to solve, and more perilous decisions to make. Someone *.* told me that "as we all know, children have problems of their own" Yes, and adults are never rid of them too. But the question is, which of these are we truly capable of dealing with?

Just a thought.

So, if given a chance to go back in time just for one month, without any memory of being from the future, what year/age would you prefer to be? Why? And, what would you do?

My answers later.

photo note: "Circle of Innocence", is my entry for Black & White Photo Challenge.

See this week's Photo Friday and Illo Friday entries too.

A nice take on the photo challenge.

If am given a chance, I don't think I want to change anything. I prefer to be where am at now.

it is only for one month-so why not? I would go back during the time when I was 6 year old where I had fond memories of my childhood flying kites with my two younger sisters and siblings in the fields and where I felt my parents were so happy and ohhh life was so simple,then.

Thanks for the visit! As for the question--I'd vote for 4 1/2, the age my boys are now; they live in a magical, sometimes scary, always exciting world, where everything generates a million questions and every day is an adventure. The best thing about being a Dad is having two wonderful little tickets to that world, and being able to look at it through their eyes. That and I can go see "Curious George" without people staring.

i wanna be 8 again. to be able to play in the ricefields in San Pedro, Laguna, those years when subdivisions were still in the blueprints of the architects; just running and screaming with my brothers and friends; and stealing sugar cane in the nearby sugar cane plantation. that's my fondest memory of my childhood.

hey, that was in the late 70's okay? dont want to give you the impression that am really that old!

jeez, why am i so defensive? teehee:=)

24/4/06 1:43 AM  
Blogger atomicvelvetsigh whispered...

deity.. ohh wow.. that's a nice memory.. can't say i was already born then. but hey, ricefields in Laguna still exists to this day, tho not particularly in San Pedro. subdivisions are sprouting like mushrooms there indeed! 8)

and thanks for sharing your thoughts on this.

Hm well as i said *.* i think childeren have much problems already then. At least i cant remember i was a long without them. Lol but maby its true that negative things just make more impression and their memory will last (longer). Would some psych not acknowledge that even babies have a hard time fighting for attention and milk? lol
Too bad we cant keep the future in going back for a month; How i like to be 16 again! Maby the most trouble causing times! reading vulgar poems in class hehe i mean i would then! haaa

But then my first childhood memory walking in a field with my broth and sis (did we had a goat with us?) going for a picknick. Then sitting in the shade of some trees, buzzing insects the sweet smell of dry grass under a cloudless blue sky all in a golden languid glow.. or that Hot day in spring my mom busy with cleaning; boxes full of stuff in the hall. In one i find a red rubberball. When i throw it on the floor it jumps to the ceiling amazing when i bite in it the sharp taste of plastic (i still taste it) then i walk outside gazing at the giant popular trees -Would i notice it when i went back? (why do i remember them? hmm).
I think i just stay in my age and those memories.

Blogger atomicvelvetsigh whispered...

Ambres.. wow.. thanks for that wonderful insight! it's so great to come across forgotten memories.. and gee, still taste the rubberball! you have such a keen memory! nice that you can still recall way back when you were a child, tho bits and pieces, it's still amazing.

thank you for sharing all these, but which one is it? would you prefer more on "just stay in your age and those memories" or "to be 16 again"?

25/4/06 4:05 PM  
Blogger Ambres whispered...

lol since we cant take the future with us (to be the same on that age of 16 please no! i prefer the last 8)

lol oh of course.. i understand. id note that 8) thanks!

Id like to remember my fifth grade. The time, macho brothers were created.
The time I embraced boyish ways.
I remember Cathy, Ruth & I used to bike around teachers village to asked for old newspapers & bottles for our school paper drive. As if we were like the movie now & then...
The time when I got terribly lots of crush - MIKE (smilee :)), JAIME (jb), JOHN CARLO (stripee), & EJ (curly hair). uhh!cant stop thinkin' bout them.
I remember I have an autograph book & have them sign in, hehe.
And this what i thought about:
Mike ideal face of my ideal man...hmmm.
John Carlo my (feeling of)look-a-like to be husband hehe...
this is it!
