I wonder, with my kids, what (to me) small things will stick in their memories, like burrs, while larger things fade into obscurity.

That drawing would have troubled me at six, too... Though at sixteen I had a friend who painted the headboard of her bed as if it was her own tombstone and drew and painted pictures of skeletons. She and I thought it was daringly existential and grown up.

I figure that the things that have lasted this long from childhood will be with us forever. It's all the stuff in between that's getting hazier!

Maybe I'm the eternal teenager, but I find the story of your friend most endearing!


She was wonderful. And, sadly, she's my own "artistic girl." Lost now.

Sorry to hear that, Eliz. She sounds wonderful.
