Phantom Manor

Thin Places


1983-1984 (APPROX.)

I was young, maybe 5 or 6 and I remember climbing the chain link fence int he back yard, between my yard and our neighbor’s. They had a dog that I liked to watch. Only that day, it wasn’t their yard on the other side of the fence, but some place else. There were topiaries, vast gardens and somewhere in the far distance a large castle or manor house. Also the light was different. It was afternoon in my back yard, but clearly late evening over there. Fireflies were coming out.
