Diary, December, 1967

(click to enlarge)


  1. This is quite nice. I think a lot of us wish this.

  2. Now it's my turn to say "ouch" and it's about those of us who were not allowed to be young. What a colorful, pulling drawing. And I happen to know that's not how your house of worship would have looked.

    The holidays stir up a lot of good and bad things, I think. I'm trying to tiptoe through December without taking any falls, without breaking anything past, present or future.

  3. i've been old since the day i was born.

  4. I guess I feel the opposite...I feel so immature and clueless, and I wonder if I'll ever grow up.
    I didn't know you could draw as well as you do. Learn something new every day, don't we?

  5. I recognize that child!

  6. Very touching post!
    It brings back a lot of memories on how "old and alone" I always felt.
    This is the first time in my life that I will be spending Xmas and New Year without any family member, I will just be with friends at the bush celebrating with nature… I wonder if this is going to be the most mean full Xmas of all (??)



  7. That is so sad.

    Of course at twelve I was being asked to pay full price on the buses so I had my own problems.

  8. Abe, Limes & Standing - Yes, I think a lot of us feel like we had to grow old before our time.

    Marie - you silly. You are not immature or clueless. You're one of the most informed friends I have.

    Jonas - I'm glad there was recognition at some level.

    Gabriela - 'old and alone' in the bush?! Sounds kind of exciting. Hope you have a great Christmas.

    Jim - I would love to have seen you at 12. I think now you look like one of the ZZ Top guys - Dusty Hill. Really cool.

  9. So poignant, Kass, both picture and words.


It's nice to know you've stopped by. Thanks.
