When I was approximately 7 years old I remember sitting in the playground on the school bench in the middle of the day. Does not sound earth shattering I know, but it was not during a break or lunch time. Everyone was in their classrooms and lessons where taking place. The school layout consists of one level building with many classrooms that look out onto the school playground. Each classroom had big windows so you had good visibility to see everything that is going on including the playground. The school office you would have to walk past to get out of the school, it would be very hard to get out of the school without being noticed.
I just remember sitting on the school bench, with my back to the classrooms staring out onto the empty playground. I don’t know how I got there, as I do not remember having a bad day, or an argument with anyone or wanting to run out of school, as I was happy at school. I equally do not know how I got back into the school from the playground. It is quite a mystery, and yet I was in plain view, any of the children in the classrooms would have spotted me sitting there. It was like I had all the time in the world sitting there, in my own zone, and yet invisible even though I was very much physically visible.
I could feel the wind through my hair as I sat there looking at the playground all on my own. To this day I do not know what happened, this is all I remember being invisible it felt to the school around me and yet I knew I was there. I did not get told off, it is like no one noticed only me. What happened that day who knows? its a mystery but maybe one day it will make sense. Or am I making more of it than I should? my answer would be maybe, I can only share what happened.
I know how it felt and how the school day was run, I had no reason to leave the classroom as I got on well with my friends. I was happy to go to school.
This is my first physical what is going on D file moment, it stood out enough for me to remember still 41 years later.
Its not earth shattering but its the start of many D file moments.
Much Love to You
