Country House

Country House

I can so easily see it in my mind … my grandparents country house. A huge lawn, picket fence, lots of trees and beautiful flowers. The house itself was that of a growing family … five bedrooms, two bathrooms, a huge kitchen, formal dining room, formal living room and a large family room. In the summer the windows were open, and the sun shown through brightly. The yard was a riot of color, and we often sat out on the veranda, talking or playing board games. The good memories are there … they really are.

But so are the dark shadows … and the closet that we would hide in for safety.
