April 23, 2007

As we maneuver through the stages of life, we eventually get to the stage when the children are raised, jobs are retired from, and we find ourselves able to remake ourselves, as it were. We are able to live out the question invariably asked of each of us at a very young age: WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO BE WHEN YOU GROW UP?

Well my roommate of fifty one years plus has let her creative juices flow unabated and just for the fun of it is producing objects that rival her professional colleagues in the marketplace. That is a completely unbiased opinion of a completely unbiased observer of course, chuckle, chuckle.

She creates these objects in spite of being a person born under the sign of the Gemini. For those who don't take note of such things, those who entered this world between May 21 and June 21 of the year are officially designated a Gemeni. The symbol for Gemini is the twins, whose character traits are duality and changeability. My point being that it is my belief if my roommate would have not been born a Gemini she may have gone further in her chosen field of endeavor.

But now here we are on the other end of our lives interjecting the question: IF I HAD MY LIFE TO LIVE OVER, I WOULD HAVE...

It's fun having the time and freedom now to entertain questions such as these, and for my roommate to let her creativity flow and produce objects that reflect her talents and her Gemini given leanings of changeability just for that end, the fun of it.
