the 12 given words:
window sailing crammed small bare ancient 
rising hummimg light falling friend breast

3WW given words:
kaleidoscopic (adj: multicolored psychedelic)
lacerate (verb: gash slash wound)

definitely a window of opportunity
not to pass off the joys of sailing
though crammed in a small boat
bare of any pretences of luxury
and seemingly ancient by any standards
but lots of fun to a teenager

that was a long time ago
when given the chance
what a thrill!

rising to the occasion
humming a light little tune
head over heels like falling
in love with a special friend
and heaving a heavy breast
with the first kiss

it was a lucky break not intentional
but with kaleidoscopic hallucinations then
on how it could have been a luxury yacht

lacerated in thinking perhaps
but dreaming of the good life!

    Hi Hank, nice to see you! Love what you came up with using all of those words...excellent. When you're a teenager, the simplest of things can bring job like having your own modest sailboat and your first kiss. Sweet, Hank.

    Can bring "joy" not job! Sorry for the typo.

  4. Wow, you used all the words to re-create teenage dreamboat!

  5. This is so wonderfully dreamy!!

  6. Beautifully written and makes me want to jump on a plane to San Diego. I can feel the water and the excitement of youth...bkm

  7. Quite a challenge of words, Hank, amazing how you managed to conjure up a nostalgia of carefree youthful days and dreams

  8. Dreaming of the good life, and love. Nothing wrong with that!

  9. You managed to fashion the words into pleasant dreams! Well done.

  10. You captured the excitement and thrill of the adventure in vivid images. That alone would have made the little boat seem like a luxury yacht. The experience was as priceless. 😊


  11. It is the company that makes such occasions magical and memorable.

  12. pleasant dreams and Old egg is right the company makes it memorable

  13. Nothing wrong with dreaming away, just have to watch the whole grass isn't greener thing.

  14. Sailing away on a cloud into a sea of dreams. I enjoyed the journey.
