Dear Young One: Don't Grow Up. Stay young always. Play checkers. Go on a swing when you see a swing. Make snow angels. Be corny and a bit crass. Laugh. No rush to get old. No need to be so mature about life. Wear it well. Wear it like the loose garment that it is. Chiffon. Silk. Baggy pajamas. Shawls. Hug a teddy. Sit on a stoop. All this to say, do not grow up too fast. Grow old in slow motion. Promise yourself to not be in a hurry to get to the mountain top. Go slow. Love, You.
