What has kept me sane, all my life, are my Strong High Walls! Perhaps that is why I love the region of Italy where I live, its full of medieval villages and castles. With strong walls that have protected the old village within for centuries.
I have been a Medieval Castle all my life with my wondrous world within my walls, that has kept me sane. I felt that I could let my drawbridge down and stake a stroll in the woods near by without locking up. My neighbor with whom we have always been friendly but have different views on life said they would keep an eye out from their watch tower……..Boy, I was wrong.
I had no idea of the envy my neighbor hid from me all these years. They have been patiently waiting, with smiles and flags of peace towards me all these years, just for this precise moment.
“Ha, she has lowered her drawbridge and has trusted me to watch over her castle.”
I got back with flowers and berries I picked to share with my sweet neighbor……..and was left in total Loss & Shock.
They strolled across my drawbridge while I was out, and did a ClockWorkOrange within my walls.
