crossing stream

Fearless Girl.

When Lydia was 8 she & I were crossing a mountain stream.

She bounded to the further bank. I lingered. Scared.

“Have no fear, Nani!” she exhorted with her hands on her hips,

a proud 4 foot tall, invincible force.

Then she leaned in to grab my hand.

And I too leaped, er, gingerly picked my way across.

She could have been the model for the Wall Street statue taking on the Charging Bull.

A fearless girl.

PATTY

Fearless Girl helps tentative Nani cross raging brook, a 420 character 9-liner inspired by that Wall Street statue and the raging bull.

  1. LYD’S SISTER CHLOE IS ALSO A FEARLESS GIRL. IN FACT CLAIRE AND HANNAH (MORE OF THEIR COUSINS) ARE FEARLESS TOO. IN FACT THEIR MOTHERS, SARAH-RYAN-CATHERINE, ARE PROBABLY THEIR MODELS. (Certainly not their Nani! At least in the area of bounding mountain streams.)
