Let them play for AJJ

A digital journal page for
My month of exploring and creating pages for the  'Time ' theme is nearly ending.
I have been on quite a journey and have been inspired by all the awesome contributions.
Please pop over HERE to see the gallery, it is amazing
This collage was assembled  with me thinking back .
to times when children were  allowed to play and explore what could be found around them.
Not always easy these days  in our troubled world

This is a photograph my OH took from our window across the valley on a misty morning earlier this year. I used this as the base background for this page.

Thank you for calling to see me today, comments you leave me are always appreciated.

    I'm reading a novel written many years ago and the difference in the attitude to children running and playing freely is quite astonishing.
