Note to Myself No. 10




One of the things that was magical
about being a kid
was playing dress-up,
donning costumes and adult clothes
and fancy costume jewelry
and high heels miles too big.

Pretending
just for a moment
that we were
grown-up
fancy 
people.

We could be a nurse
or a fashion model
or anything our imagination
could manifest
for those costumed minutes.

Too often,
as grown ups,
we stop playing with possibility.

Play dress up more often!
