Re: my name is Lindsey


Number 1, the adult is always responsible to and for the child.

That's why we call young people mature and knowlegeable as the child may be, they can never have all the needed experience to know what is right to do or think.

Some children never do figure it all out...they grow into confused adults.

The best you can do is to...

...Notice what people in your family do to help you...the things that give you that warm feeling of being cared for and about.

...Appreciate what it took them to accomplish the good things you do have. Say so, and work with them as best you can, and,

...Avoid wishful thinking. This is difficult sometimes, but realize that things you wish for may not be the way you would like them to be.

Know this, little one...someday you can look for your wishes and daydreams. You will have better judgment of what you like, and what is possible, then.

Meanwhile, study all you can about your own future...the future you can make with your own hands and intelligence.

Go to the library and ask about things in this world that interest you. Read. There are wonderful things in books that you haven't yet dreamed.

Have you ever seen Watercolor Quilts? (Go to and click on 'see inside this book'. You won't believe your eyes!

Ask family members what they do, and why they like it.

Does anyone knit or crochet? Ask them to teach you, if you think you might like it. ( )

The things you are interested in, and learn, will become part of the rest of your life. It's like riding a bicycle, you will learn most easily at this age, and you will never forget.

Would you like to learn Italian? Now is the time.

Have you ever planted a garden? Or, sprouted mung beans in a jar on the kitchen counter? Or, spent an evening with puzzles?

Could you write a page on what your sibling likes best? Can you develop into a fine runner, carefully strengthening your talent? Have you gone for a hike with friends, packing a lunch? There is much to be seen on just a quiet walk around the block.

I loved to build houses, in my mind...still do. My first was a huge wooden packing case, sunk into the ground. Ever seen a geodesic dome? What holds it up?

This is the time of your life to discover things you can easily and safely do, without 'complications'. Ask your family to guide you. Ask those who are here, today.

You will see more, and understand more, someday in the future.

Now, enjoy being a child...and do it with those who are near. This is a very special time in your life. You'll see.
