[personal profile] littlebutfierce asks me What about your life now would most astonish (& delight) your teenage self?

Hm. This question is harder than it looks.

I think the first delightful thing is that I would still be close to several friends who go back to my teenage years in my life, and that I’m still in touch with some people I flunked nap time in kindergarten. Also, I wasn't close to my sister for a long time, and we're finally having a good time together as we have hit or approach the half century mark.

The next thing would be my rediscovery of the fiber arts. I truly wouldn’t have imagined how much fun knitting, weaving, and spinning would be.

My home would also be astonishing because l would have never foreseen living in a loft in a converted walnut factory with my partner, four cats, and lots of fiber and books.

Then of course, there’s the impact the internet and social media would have on my life. Think about it, today’s question was posed to me by a friend who lives in Europe and that we see each other finances permitting at a feminist gathering in Wisconsin once a year and keep in touch the rest of the time on social media.

Finally, I got the feminist thump on my head in college, and it’s shaped everything else I’ve done since then.
