Once upon a time

Magic words. All the really good stories start this way.

I have notebooks going back to when I was a little kid, and bits of paper and they all have the same word doodle on them - along the edges, on the front. Even some of my books have the word doodle on the the inside page along with my name.

I have notebooks and bits of paper from my 20's and 30's and 40's and 50's and they have the same word doodle on them.

The word doodle looks exactly like this...



Some times it is written three times, some time four - never just once. Always staggered. Always just the way you see it there.

I wonder what those words meant to the child? And to the adult - probably just a habit by then.

Once upon a time - magic words.
