It must be summer. The carnival is in town, and a delicious breeze of funnel cake and hot dogs is carried past my window. Children walk by at dusk with their glow sticks and cotton candy. Moms and dads carry blankets and baskets of snacks. Fireworks begin at 9 PM sharp.
This is how I remember the annual carnival. Like most things adults cherish from their childhood, I'm sure carnivals have changed a bit since I was a little girl. But as the Fourth of July approaches, I'm reminded one of summers pleasures, and it is the inspiration behind my board.
