Nothing Gold

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay. -Robert Frost

I am a white American middle class suburban housewife trying desperately to tell herself that that is not who she is. One time I was a glowing young ruffian. Oh my God it was a million years ago.

Memory Lane Monday

This picture is from my 17th birthday. This would have been 1996, my junior year of high school. Man, was I thin, hmm. Anyway, birthdays were a big deal at my house. We always had a lot of fun, but the parties were never the big to-dos that they seem to be today. We always had friends and games and cake and presents, but the parties were always at home and we didn't have themed napkins, and I think that those may be the main differences.
The kids in the picture are my sister Claire and my brothers Peter and George. They are some good kids and I really love them. If you're wondering why George is in his underwear, well, George was always in his underwear. Seriously, up until he was 8 or 9 he would strip down as soon as he got home - 30 seconds, tops. This was especially annoying when we had to leave again soon, because he didn't get dressed nearly as quickly as he got undressed, but there was no stopping the stripping.
