What do you miss about being a kid?- Climbing coconut trees.
Sneak Peek: “Sometimes the kids left a note on top of my desk for me. I didn’t know what it said but I looked at their drawings. I would draw a smiley face and place it back on top. I attempted to communicate with the outside world without leaving my safe haven.”
