Jarring Reminder

Checking a post’s formatting, I noticed a picture in the Flickr bar at right.

“Has she changed so much?” I gasped as I clicked on through. No teeth; short hair; such a very young face — she looks like a different child.

I click through the set — “LMS (First Year)” — and I see a terrifying picture.

I would never put L in a setting like that now: she’s entirely too mobile and to hard-headed. She’d be tumbling down the rocks within moments.

Or would she? She’s a big girl; she has a fairly developed sense of balance. She might not. The old protectiveness clashes with the new, maturing reality.
