oh what fleeting moments I should capture, oh what memories I should still possess

an old picture of me

When I was young, I just loved clowns. I have no idea how that got started, or why I loved them so much, but I did. So why are pictures like this such a surprise to me? How is that something I forget? What I see here is a grouping of some of the clowns that I had collected (note the wall art!). What I think is that it's amazing how much we change over the years and how many things there are about ourselves that even we don't remember.

I notice well that one stray step

from the habitual path

leads irresistibly

into a new direction.

  1. Love the “wall art” with the clown figurines. It’s like looming adulthood juxtaposed against the end of childhood. I guess that’s what adolescence is all about!

    • And sometimes adulthood, too – I seem to be constantly in flux, in one way or the other. I thought the cut out pictures were funny, though. I didn’t even notice them until I was about to publish and it was too funny not to call attention to it.
