Characters Study

16 Sep

I found this picture in my mother’s files, and it probably tells you all you ever need to know about the way my sister and I went through life.

This was taken at Easter, 1958. I was almost sixteen, and going through my “Famous Model” stage, and Lynn was eleven, and going through her “Wooden Indian” phase, I suppose. That’s my mom’s father in the middle, trying to act as if he doesn’t know either one of us.

A pair of characters.

    You did a good job at being a “famous model!”

    This is priceless. You’re right. Doesn’t this tell you a lot about yourself at this time? I think it takes some years, but looking back, I think it was healthy, creative and wonderful to try on those personas. And we’re still a work in progress. 🙂
