    I was in love with her all through elementary school..
    giving her broken jewelry from my mamas jewelry box..
    trying to act like I was just rolling by on my bike..
    even though she lived in the last house on a dead end street.

    James,

    I see you're painting again, with that childlike energy of yours.
    This journey back to your elementary school love is sweet and endearing. It prompted me to take my own trip back to the dime store jewelry gifts; the roses are red, violets are blue, poems on red heart shaped paper and the bike rides passed my house for no earthly reason other than to hope I would be outside and noticed him riding by on his brand new 10 speed bike. Ah! Thank you for the memories brought on by this delightful piece.
