photo stories - the magic of childhood

In Zen in the Art of Writing, Ray Bradbury tells writers to make word/phrase lists
of everything they found magical throughout their lives - those little things that
get you excited, inspired, the ideas that get one drunk on life.  For him, it was the
circus, the lake, the night, the crickets, ravine, attic, trapdoor, night train, fog horn,
scythe, carnival, dwarf, skeleton, and on and on (page 17).  From these lists, he says,
we should create our stories.

A few of mine are shown below - jumping rope, icicles, hot chocolate in winter,
bubbles.  What is on your list?
