This is that feeling, by Britta Benson

This is that feeling

Summer of ‘83. Thirteen, underdeveloped, ridiculous. On my white t-shirt, tiny multi-coloured stars. Yellow, green, satin shorts, no fashion sense, even back then. My rainbow rollerskates act like the wings of a mythical beast. I glide, I dart, weave. And I know: this is that feeling. Free. Wind. Fast. Me.

    1. Thanks, Margaret. I’d like to report that my pre-teen awkward, gawky self has since blossomed into a beautiful butterfly, but alas, I’m still as goofy and ridiculous as ever… Only now, I wear my awkwardness with pride!
