This is quite nice. I think a lot of us wish this.
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.
i've been old since the day i was born.
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?
I recognize that child!
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 (??)loveNlightGabi
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.
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.
So poignant, Kass, both picture and words.
It's nice to know you've stopped by. Thanks.
