20 again? never…well maybe

Today is the birthday of a dear friend.  She is 26 today.  This has me thinking about age and life and… etc.

I can easily say that you couldn’t PAY me to be 20 again.  I absolutely LOVE being in my 30s — particularly my young thirties.  (I don’t know that I want to leave them!)  And VERY, VERY rarely will you ever catch me being envious of the aforementioned young ladies; however, I have made an exception — two actually.

Through many clicks and tabs I wandered on the photography site of Nirrimi.  This girl is 17, SEVENTEEN! and an O-MAZING professional photographer.  Her blog is sweet and endearing full of young adult angst.  I am completely smitten with her!

And way back in 2008 I blogged about my discovery of Laura Marling while hiking across England.  I knew she was young, but good lord, she turns 20 on February 1st!  TWENTY.  She too is amazing.

Oh, to be so young and so friggin’ talented!

  1. Well, due to the sound of daughter watching wonder pets on my husband’s computer, I couldn’t enjoy the video as much as I’d like to. I’ll have to try again later, but she sounds quite wise and soulful for such a youngster. I always wanted to be able to play the guitar, and I admire the young people who put in the time to master it.
