When I Was Young
I've made many scenarios with a plastic hand holding something: fork, roast turkey, cat, cup, etc. One of my all-time favorites is this one: holding a frog. I've never done this myself, I imagine it'd be quite icky, but it strikes me as something you'd only do as a kid, and as a researcher of some sort perhaps. Maybe as a naturalist I suppose. I made this particular plastic ensemble quite a few years ago and I've just kept it, which is rare for me. I'm quite superstitious about letting my things go. I feel that if I don't I am telling the universe/the gods/ my creative self, "That's it, I'm done, I'm where I want to be. I don't need to make anything new thanks." I doubt I'll ever feel this way, and if I do, it is many many years hence.
