Gradebook from 1966



                              Old treasures from ancient times
                              I find in boxes that are put away
                                   A little book from 1966
                                    Frontpage on the book
                              The Norwegian flag is hoisted up
                                       Red, white and blue
                                  On the first page  is written
                                  with a beautiful handwriting
                           "Anne-Lise is a handsome and clever girl -
                                She has top marks in all subjects "
                                   One little girl with light hair
                                         Smiling and pleased
                                           Deep blue eyes
                                    who wish to experience life
                            Heaven is cloudless and thoughts are free
                            Unaware what life and the future will bring
                                Enjoyable to find my first Gradebook

    Hi Anne-Lise, Isn't it amazing when you look through attics and old boxes and you find such things that bring back the memories. A gentle write f remembrance my friend. Isn't life strange with some people, they are young they want to be a little older, they start dreaming their dreams of life. They get older they want to be younger and they wish not to dream any more. Keep the memories and the dreams my friend, may you find many more gradebooks. Have a good day. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    It's amazing how such little things can mean so much to us. And it's even more amazing when we find ways to put them into words :). And the best is when we can relate to those words and we end up sharing that feeling. I think this is beautiful :). -Tanisha

    Always nice to come across a little nostalgia, I won't bother to find out any of my old school reports, they always said the same thing. "Gary is too easily distracted"........now what was I saying, oh yeah, great poem enjoyed as always.

    From what we understand, you live in one of the best places on this planet, and you are hoisted up just like the flag. A very loving tribute to your life so far, and the way you express it is touching in retrospect. Another smile on my face!

    I think Anne-Lise is a handsome and clever girl too and she gets top marks in all subjects that she is subjected to... Let's change the subject shall we? You gave away your age (but I promise I won't tell) Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!...Much love to you - Tim

    I.too look back at old notebooks from my grade school days. My first published work was in my elementary school publication. It was something like "Mary spilled some ice cream on her little red bicycle' Mary felt very sad. " There is "the brillant seashore called the past" as Ray Bradbury wrote (I forget where).

    I always thought you were much younger, Anne. Your spirit is so happy and uplifting! I'll never know what it's like, because I've never been in a grade book (nor have I attended a normal high school). I imagine it's an accomplishing feeling though. Nice piece of reflection :)
