                             The Land of Days
                                              by Janet S. Tiger  (c) 2018


Welcome to.our magic world!  The world of your dreams - your nightmares!

Welcome to......the Land of Days!

Here.....see this day of wonder!  Your first day on this planet!  Your birthday!

You may not recall it all.....but here, you can see it!  In glorious color - or black and white 
if you prefer to be a bit retro!

There...floating by is you very first memory!  What is it?  A happy one?  A scary one?

It is a day that will live in your infamy!

Oh, it different than you recall?  Different because the memory is stored in a place in
your mind that gets a bit moldy, and the boxes shift and fall and the memories are no longer
clear?  Not to worry!

Everyone has that problem...which is why, in this land.....we understand.....oooh, wait, here's
another one!  First.....something!  Can you see it?  Feel it?  What was it?  A piece of
steak cooked perfectly....or a kiss?

Not the same?  Well, maybe they are!  

In our land.....the days are clear and cloudy, whether or not the weather is to your on that
beautiful day you first went into the river....or the ocean.....or the bathtub!

Did you know that would be a special memory?

But the secret is.....they are all special.....because what we remember and what we forget are
all here in our land of days of your sands in our land..... the hourglass.....turns for 
a few more moments, but even though the days are numbered.....the number of days you get
to remember is bulleted......and so we go......

      (Turns to leave, stops, looks back)

Be careful!  At all costs, avoid the other days.....the days of others......for in the land of days,
in the land of memories.....we are all landed gentry....until the grounded for the long

         (Exits with a flourish, the window closes)
