Guilty, as Charged: A Saturday Snapshot
I am guilty, yes, of wishing I was this young again.
This was taken in the backyard of my youthful residence, on Argyle Street, on the prairies of Saskatchewan, Canada.
NOT A WORRY IN THE WORLD!
Wow -- to be this cute again, would be nice.
A recent photograph would not be nearly as universally endearing.
I long for the pristine teeth, and full head of hair. And brain full of lofty ideals.
However, as a wise old man once said:
The complete life, the perfect pattern, includes old age as well as youth and maturity. The beauty of the morning and the radiance of noon are good, but it would be a very silly person who drew the curtains and turned on the light in order to shut out the tranquility of the evening. Old age has its pleasures, which, though different, are not less than the pleasures of youth.
-- W. Somerset Maugham --
