This is my neighbour’s house located at the junction of two roads. This wall holds precious memories for my family.
When my three children were young – they are in their twenties now – I used to bring them here after dinner. Can you guess what we did? We played the shadows game; making shapes of animals using the light of the nearby street lamp. One special game that I liked to play with my youngest – and cheekiest – was to pretend to hammer her head with my fist like a pile-driver. Try to picture this. With each ‘blow’, it looked as if she was being driven deeper and deeper into the ground. She seemed to get such a big kick out of it.
** The wall looks a bit dirty now. They are going to renovate and repaint it soon.
