I digress. I was considering a TBT photo and found this little gem in my scan album. Me, my sisters and grandmother. 1995. Graduating and about to depart for a life unknown. Delightful.
I am nostalgic for the freedom of being 18 with a full life ahead of me. Starting over, beginning again with a clean slate of possibility. Yes, that is a freeing, lovely experience.
I think of my sisters and how we all have chosen different paths. Marriage, children, relocation, job change...of course we can still understand each other in ways in which other people will not. Gotta love childhood to enable that.
I remember thinking I would conquer the world when I was 18. In some ways, I have, in my own way. Similarly, my sisters have achieved much success in their own way.
This photo illustrates how free I felt to be embarking on my adult adventure. Happy days are ahead....
