Scouting: it seems years ago that my mother sewed on my own badges, on my own rough brown shirt.
Now, in a fun twist of fate, I am sewing on badges for my lovely neighbours’ children. I am definitely seeking the title of Queen of the Sewing Machine in this apartment building! Come to think of it, I rather suspect there is no competition at all. Sewing is hardly a fashionable hobby around here, as far as I can see.
Come to think of it, maybe my kiddies might soon enjoy scouting? But, living in the centre of the city, this seems rather an odd idea. I associate it with running around in the wild woods. But wilderness, in the city, might be just around the corner. Who knows?
Happy exploring! JJ
