As I walked by - they raised their eyes. They lifted their heads. They looked right thru me.
What did they see? I wondered.
A girl with a camera? A woman?
A one who isn't feeling nearly as old as she should.
A one who hasn't yet decided who she'll be when she grows up.
A one who - still - can't quite explain how she got here.
What were they thinking? I pondered.
Four sweet faces. Each one unique. Each one different.
Maybe - I didn't care so much what they thought.
Maybe - on this beautiful morning - I was feeling only grateful.
And - at that - they walked right to me.
