Anyway, it was Satir Family Camp based on the work of Virginia Satir. I think of it every once in a while and there is always one thing that pops into my head as my chief memory. I was sitting with a group of kids in a tent and this little guy, who must have been about twelve, looked right at me and told me, "You're going to be a funny looking grown-up."
OK, so...wow! When I close my eyes I can still totally see what he looked like. He had shaggy blond hair, glasses with super thick lenses, teeth a little too big for his face, and a bit of a recessed chin. Yes, he was absolutely adorable! Seriously! At least that's what I think of him now. Back then I though he was a "little turd".
So, as I've aged, his words visit me from time to time, particularly on bad hair and got-too-little-sleep days. As I'm pondering my own look I think of him. I wonder if he ever thinks of the little girl cursed with looks that would go goofy over the years. I wonder what he looks like now. Somehow I imagine he still has thick lens glasses, shaggy hair, a recessed chin, teeth that finally match his head, and I bet he's absolutely adorable!
Thanks for "liking" my blog posts!!
