Revisiting Childhood, 2001-09-15, 6:07 p.m.

'Cause I've got a Golden Ticket!

Yes, a lyric from 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'. I've been singing that line for a bit. And others. I really want the soundtrack and the mp3's. Maybe I'll do a little check around for them. For a revisiting to childhood.

There's no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going. There's no knowing where we're rowing, or which way the river's flowing

I loved the book of 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'. The sequel was less entrancing. Roahl Dahl is amazing. I had all the books I think. I had my students read one of his adult short stories. Even that was facinating. He amazes me. I was checking in one of his childrens books of short stories and nearly started reading it the other day.

I want a party with roomfuls of laughter, Ten thousand tons of ice cream

When I was a kid, my parents requested that the movie store buy the movie 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'. I rented it every other weekend. Along with 'Babes in Toyland' and a few others. We made it worth their while. I don't think that many other people rented it. I however, rented it, sang it - lived it. I have always had a big imagination. I wanted to take the glass elevator. I bought the candy and pretended.

'Cause I've got a Golden Ticket.....

Come with me and you'll be
In a world of pure imagination
Take a look and you'll see
Into your imagination

We'll begin with a spin
Trav'ling in the world of my creation
What we'll see will defy

If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it
Anything you want to, do it
Want to change the world, there's
nothing to it

There is no life I know
To compare with pure imagination
Living there, you'll be free
If you truly wish to be


There is no life I know
To compare with pure imagination
Living there, you'll be free
If you truly wish to be
