November 1968

i was still in elementary school when i took note of this old kindergarten picture.  to this day, it remains my favorite picture of myself.  when i looked at this photo, i could see something about it.  there was something about the time when it was taken.  there was something about the animation in my face.  there was something about the way i was at that time.

when i was young i wouldn't have known how to articulate it.  i knew that there was something about the way i was in that photo that was very good.  i also knew that whatever that good thing was, it was also very gone.  i know how to articulate it now.  it was a time when i still looked at the world primarily as a place of opportunity.  i didn't know then that the world would often be a place of danger, especially for someone like me.  i didn't know then that the world would often seem like a place of futility, especially for someone like me.  at five years old, i fit into my world splendidly - but that was going to change.  my new classmates were just as transparent and kind as i was, but that was going to change.  i was eager to learn and experience new things, but that was going to change.  i didn't know that i was different, but that was going to change.  

some people reach their peak in high school.  some people peak in their twenties or thirties or forties.  a lot of people peak in their fifties.  i peaked at five years old.
