BLOOMING – Marilyn Armstrong


I remember being 16 and blooming, but I didn’t know it. I thought everyone else was more beautiful than I was. It took me years to realize that there’s beautiful and there are other kinds of beauty.

  1. It is strange to look back at photos of yourself at that kind of age and realize that you really were beautiful. Youth is inherently beautiful if only for the freshness, the possibility and the energy that’s there. I’ve seen some early photos you’ve shared of yourself and to me? You were a very fine looking girl.


  2. Beautiful blooms.
    I understand your words Marilyn. Most of my childhood was spent with older girl cousins and everyone said how pretty they were. I assumed I must be the plain Jane of the family.
