‘Life’s a Journey’ series. Week 3 – Earliest writings, by Helen

Last week in the series we looked at your old school portraits. I apologise for saying this, but quite frankly some were just nasty!

This week we are taking a look at the primitive works which we crafted when we were in short trousers.

family stories - earliest writings

This particular piece (penned by Yours Truly at about the aged of 6) makes the very highly skilled observation that ‘ladie black birds are brown’ and shows enormous amounts of ornithological promise.

My writing prowess continued onwards and upwards from here, and was out-matched only by my creativity in the art department.

This magical, atmospheric and colourful piece demonstrates a maturity of Van-Goghian proportions, don’t you agree? Unsure about the continued ‘flying’ theme, however. A somewhat curious obsession.

Next week we step back and revisit old friendships. Perhaps you have a best pal whom you’ve known since your school days, or just someone whose friendship you want to celebrate? Get ready to share!!
