On the surface this picture may appear as just a pair of kids playing dressup in an overly cluttered room. However, to us it was so much more. In this particular photo my brother, Wes, and I were out for a pleasure ride in our fly carriage with Joan the rocking horse. This was a regular activity of ours. Sometimes we would sit on the couch and pretend that we had a conestoga wagon, using blankets and we would spend all day playing in it. We would get so absorbed in our fake reality that we would feel genuine fear or joy depending on the situation we’d created. Why were we so easily entertained by our own imaginations when most kids were watching TV or playing on their Game Boys? My brother and I are both dressed in traditional Amish clothing
