I had a wonderfully nostaglic night looking for old photos that might work for this purpose. I headed to my childhood home with several photos in hand. Imagine my surprise to arrive on Lafayette Street, to find the house for sale. Is there a message here for me?
In any case, here's the photo I chose.
Now I remember why I don't wear short hair or a bikini!
But, what if I could talk to that little girl? What would I tell her? Several things:
- Relish your childhood (life is going to get rough)
- Love harder (they will not be here for long)
- Don't quit the piano!
- Make smart(er) decisions
- Go to college
- Take better care of yourself
- You turn out okay
- You'll live a fulfilled life
