I grew up, the youngest child of three, in a working class family in the nineteen forties and fifties. My brother and sister were quite a few years older than I was, so by the time I was five years old, my brother had been working for some time and my sister was in her final year of school. My childhood companions therefore, were the children of the surrounding neighbourhood. And what an amazing place it was! We had very few possessions and our entertainment was not handed to us on a platter. In fact, it was not handed to us at all. What we lacked materially, we more than made up for with inventiveness and imagination.
The glorious tapestry of life that we wove as children came from within. It had to; there was no other way.
And we were enriched!

"As we started to round the corner I turned and looked back and waved a fond farewell, not only to my mother, but also to my childhood, as I began the first day of the rest of my life."
