When I reached the age of 12, I was given the key to open the china closet. I touched the plates, cups, glasses and other items. I enjoyed the feel of a delicate and beautiful, floral sugar and creamer set. It wasn't long before my fingers opened the bottom drawer and grabbed the stereoscope and cards. Now I propelled myself to the Taj Mahal, watched bananas picked in Cuba, sailed down the Danube, toured the Windsor Castle, and enjoyed the windmills in Amsterdam. My favorite scene was a lady sitting on top of a rock in the Alps. It made me gasped as she appeared to totter on the rock. What I really wanted to know was how she climbed to the top in a dress?
My grandmother died and the china closet was sold. Today, I still have the sugar and creamer set along with the stereoscope and cards. My world was enriched from the treasures of the china closet. Even if my world was viewed in black and white, I had a wonderful journey every time I slid a card through the stereoscope and traveled to unknown magical places.
