Did you have a childhood obsession? Maybe you were fixated on a thing happening that was impossible to happen?
My obsession: Believing Peter Pan would come and take me to Neverland.
How Did It Start?
Did it start with a book? Or a movie? I believe it was the movie Hook, starring Robin Williams. Have you seen it?
No, it was the video recording of the play. I watched part of it one night as I kept an icepack pressed against my head--keeping down the swelling I had received from falling from the top bunk of the bed my sister and I shared.
Or did it start from something else?
I honestly don't remember.
What I do remember: I was obsessed with flying, with Tinker Bell sprinkling me with pixie dust, and Peter Pan taking my hand, leading me off to Neverland.
Calling On Peter Pan
I wasn't completely alone in my obsession. My childhood friend loved the idea of flying off to Neverland as much as I did. After school, we would cross the street from her house the church parking lot and twirl in circles, calling Tinker Bell to come sprinkle us with her magic dust.
