Dreams of childhood


I grow old ... I grow old ...
I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.

I could not get a line of Prufrock out of my head as I toured a very crowded Italian Gallery in the Lourve
"In the room the women come and go
Talking of Michelangelo."

Stunning image.
I remember reading Prufrock in high school - I loved it and understood none of it.

Well, do I dare to eat a peach? Or dress in a Superman costume?

The power that little bit of cloth gives a child. Great to catch him in a field of green.

These images of children were all taken in Centennial Park on Mothers' Day. Interestingly enough, this is a 'supergirl'. It was terrific to see here tear across the field with such bravado. Her daddy was very much engaged with her (and a myriad others) in the playground.

How perfect.Your photo, of course and the words you match to it. Funnily enough, talking of rolled trousers...I do, I do.
