Reid Dick in Regents Park

Michael Copeland sent me this picture of another work by Reid Dick RA which I was not aware of. Clearly a delightful childhood moment captured (even if no one believes you about the frog)! Note how he has caught the head; children hold their heads differently to the rest of us. Dated 1931.

HAH! Do you have a close-up of the frog? Looks a bit like a turtle and thus makes me think of squirrels with bunny ears.

I was just thinking today--looking at my lithe youngest, tied up like a pretzel--how differently children can sit or stand. We would be aching...

If I had followed suit I would have ended up in hospital; I noticed a young person kick the air in a sweeping circle above a traffic cone on the pavement (side walk) the other day, spinning round casually and walking on chatting away to her father as she did it. Neither of them was aware of what she had done and I do not think anyone else really noticed either!

Yes, all these limber young things don't seem altogether finished--what fun to still be mid-metamorphosis and able to tangle so delightfully with the world.
