Rewind: Fascinated by Fancy

On a completely unrelated note, this was taken in 2009... in the middle of nowhere.

I have no idea what possessed me to write this. This was August 25, 2006:

We convince ourselves that the sun has circled for the last time- that it won't see us sitting on the same chairs again. It's been so long since it had seen us bask under its rays or the shelter of clouds, so long since our aging backs had touched the soil it once was fond of, so long since we stayed up late staring at campfires we made, SOOOOOOO long since we heard joy from our mouths as raindrops start trickling on rusted roofs- screaming "SIGE PA! SIGE PA!!!". Memories so colorful & vivid yet so awkwardly distant, all encased and locked in the deep recesses in our heads - like treasure thrown down the bottom of the sea, and we simply do not mind. We become too fascinated with strange, fancy streaks of light and the glow of green paper.
