I am curious about the world at this age. I feel I know a lot and a little at the same time. What I do know is my own feelings and my own perspective. When I was little, we went on a field trip to the University of Arizona, as every Tucson-child did. The only thing I remember was seeing this window - of a classroom in the basement - i saw him and he saw me …….. it was Spring and the windows were open - and this grown up man had a soda at his desk. He was allowed to drink soda in class! It was freedom to me, and I couldn't wait to get to college to drink sodas in class.
I miss college. I had a particularly lovely bunch of people I had the pleasure of making movies with. As I suspected, we've all moved on with our lives…each as different as we were back then. We were really a hodgepodge of characters… i wish we could reunite.
But back when i saw that grown-up drinking his freedom soda in class, I thought to myself, when I'm a grown-up, tall, leggy with boobs (none happened), I'm going to do so much, I have all those childhood fuzzy foresight of the future. I pictured myself differently. And now, I miss the freedom of being the little girl walking with her class, dreaming of a bubbly future. To have that kind of clarity again.
