Love it! Mode of Being Formed at 3 1/2!
Love it! You reminded me of when I strolled into the kitchen when I was 3 1/2 in my diaper or shorts or whatever with no shirt. I politely asked my parents, “Do you want to go to Funland?” The response came back, “No, Jordan, not today, we’re making lunch.” “Ok.” And, out the door I went. They thought I was going to go play in the carport. Nope. I was not asking for permission. I was being polite, asking them if they wanted to go with me. So, down the drive and around the corner, and up a couple of blocks to the highway I went. Walked along the highway for a mile or so to arrive at FUNLAND!! WOO HOO! Funland. It was a local them park with bumper cars and cotton candy and ring toss and… THE FERRIS WHEEL. I LOVED the Ferris wheel. Tiny one, not a big one. It was big enough for me as I was 3 1/2. This is before cell phones, like 1971 or some such. My parents get a call… “Little Jordy is safe on the Ferris wheel, and we’ll keep him here, but where are you?”

Exceptions to the Rules
🙂 Yes, you’re not supposed to scare your parents. But, no one said anything about terrifying them. So, scroll forward. OH BOY YES was I in trouble. It’s funny how you learn limits and some boundaries are set. Though, I did NOT like that much at all. In fact! The very next morning, same attire, I packed my Snoopy suitcase and ran away. I mean, what else could I do. They exiled my sovereignty. Common! I was 3 1/2 and I had a world to attend to! 😉
I Made It
I made it to the curb. Started crying. Sat down. The neighbor, a local newspaper editor came and sat next to me. “Well, Jordie, what’s the trouble? Why are you crying?” I remember the glare I shot her, and then I softened to, sobbing again, “Because I’m running away!” She smiled and softly said, “So, what’s the problem? Why so sad? That sounds like freedom.” Wiping off the tears I pursed my lips… “Yes! Not NOW! This morning they said I’m not allowed to cross the street by myself!”
How do YOU smile with your ears in storms to full-on hear the gift of BOOM n BLUSTER n ALL THAT you are being given by your internal world? What messages of your FORAYS in life do you tell yourself from what you did as a kid?
Thanks Much for Visiting Today.
My natural mode of being?… I can cross any street by myself now. 😉
We’ve been silent this past week for the most part. Serendipity Itineraries and blog articles will resume shortly after this wonderful conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn.

“I made it to the curb” – my UK brain likes the way I read that as opposed to how I’d read it spelled as kerb 😊
