tadpole

aimee and i were talking the other day.
the great thing about having a generation 
or so
 between us is perspective
a gift we both give the other in friendship
she said,
"i was like a tadpole then"
still not a tadpole, about 15 years ago
(from the refrigerator)
we were talking about being 18
that's when i married
these two came along in my late 20s. 
still a tadpole.
still trying to grow up
~~~~~
 on the work table
 ideas and little tasks

it's such a gift to have you as a friend, someone who is further along in the metamorphosis! thank you for reaching out to me across all those miles when we were across the world from each other.

j-...to tadpole!
f-if only you knew (ahem, that's my dining table, my work tables are too crowded to work on!)

I know what you're talking about.... I'm my best friend's tadpole!..... (the hard part about being a tadpole I've been learning over the last few months is when your friend's health fails.... my bestest has been diagnosed with Parkinsons and its been discovered he's had 2 small strokes..... as a result I sense the vulnerability of life as never before....)
