A conversation with N.

N. and I were just sitting at the table enjoying some blueberries. Our conversation went like this:

N.: I used to not like blueberries, but now I do.

Me: Sometimes our tastes change as we get older. There are things I like now that I didn't like when I was a kid.

N.: Like what? Pears? Apples?

Me: Um...I don't know... I can't think of anything right now.

N., very serious: Because it was so long ago that you were a kid.

Right. Thanks for making me feel ancient.

Have I showed you this before? It's the first stamped silver bracelet I made while in Lisa Niven Kelly's class at Bead & Button. The saying is, "A book is like a garden carried in your pocket."

I'm going to go try to remember what it was like to be a kid so very long, long ago.

Ah yes. I remember when I was a young woman sooo long ago. I liked apples then. And I hung out in the garden alot. And there was this nice fella there named Adam. Yeah. It was a while ago.

I'm sure someday my kids will tell me just how old they think I am too! And you can tell N that I remember that I didn't like peas and squash and now I do!
