corner view ≈ last but not least



·
i remember a class count down when i was about the tender age of ten. we were asked to guess the passing of sixty seconds by counting up or down the minute in our minds, and sitting back down at the desk when we gathered the minute had passed. 
·
some sat down quite quickly (amazing!), the largest crowd sat down after some 45 seconds passed, while i remained standing, counting further till sixty, feeling akward, yet assured. 
·

i stood up last and won the {then} unappealing price of being an accurate child. in fact this does not illustrate last but not least, not by a long haul, but it's as close as i'm ever gonna get to this week's cv theme. that and the fact i came last in our little family of three children, after two much older brothers, and they've always thought me no least.... ☻ jane's corner view, francesca's hosting, babies' theme.

  2. I, too, am the youngest of three children. I like to say that my parents saved the best for last. Wouldn't you agree that is an ACCURATE statement? :-)

  3. That's means you have a very accurate internal body-clock. I bet you have a good sense of rhythm too!

  6. Great story ... I think it shows you were not only an accurate young-un but also one who was self-assured. I'll bet some of those others sat too soon because they heard others do so, and then doubted their own time keeping!

    I enjoyed the pictures, too!

  7. How sweet to have 2 older brothers! I often wonder what our son will think when he is grown, having 2 older sisters.

  9. Good for your little ten year old self to not cave into following the crowd. They would have led you astray! I keep missing you on fb therefore I'm missing our chats. Sigh. Here's to a great week.... hip hip hurrah! xo Carole

  10. It was a hard thing this week! It is funny as a child a minute seems to to by forever and now it is just a blink of an eye. SOmetimes i don't want to close my eyes as I am afraid I will miss something!

  11. Love your photos and your words dear Woolf.
    I wish I had your skill of marking time so accurately ... the minutes tend to disappear on my so quickly. ;)

  12. I like your interpretation of the theme,
    and the glimpses into you in those days!!
    feeling the sense of `nostalgia` and `present` in your photo,
    nostalgia as a present from the past?!!

  13. i find it hard still to say what amount of time has passed. hmm, it goes for everything, distance, temperature, weight. for me, being inaccurate has always been a prize - among other things, it means much less stress for me when events don't evolve in the imagined way.

  14. i can just picture you there, not just accurate, but strong. it takes great strength of character for a young child to be the last one standing...
