When I grow up

The first day of kindergarten, they gave me  8 fat crayons and a big piece of soft manilla paper. The very best thing of many best things about school.

“Make a picture of what you will be when you grow up”, they said.

Instant image, quick and sure. Brown haired girl with braids and a paintbrush in front of an easel.  Admirably rounded, masterful printing was added below. ” Heather Hatch- Artist.” Up on the wall for parent’s night  it went, proclamation to the world.

Delicious validation.  Unneeded back then, but satisfying  just the same.

And still true. I will be. When I.
