Like the Corners of My Mind

We were going through some boxes today when I stumbled upon this classic image. Call this one my birthday present for Jackie. I remember taking this, like it was yesterday:



Mindy, we were all 14 once.

Juventud, divino tesoro
Ya te vas para no volver
Cuando quiero llorar, no lloro
Y a veces lloro sin querer

--Rubén Darío

Oh, Mac, you just quoted my mother's favorite poem! She would recite that verse sometimes when she would see herself in a mirror.

She would also say, ¡A la verdad que cuando uno llega a viejo no se parece ni a Cheetah! (el mono de Tarzan). She was right!
