|A Cottage by the Sea||
Just days before I heard that the cottage would be mine for another winter, I received a picture book from a friend who reviews children’s books. “One Wish” by Francis Wolfe, is the whimsical story of a girl who wishes on a star for a cottage-by-the-sea. The illustrations brought back memories of the summer my family rented a house on the Connecticut shore when I was twelve, and of course the entire book reminded me of my current CBTS. Am I the young girl sitting on the porch, playing in the sand, and watching the gulls? Or am I the gray haired woman on the last page remembering how her wish came true? I think I am both. I live a lot in my imagination, especially during my favorite ages between 9 and 13th. Why would I ever want to grow up? And with my mom still alive, how can I?
