Oshkosh, Wisconsin (1965)
My mother sent me this photo about a year ago, and I still don't know why she chose this to send me. That's me on the left squatting, next to my brother Brad.
|"Born a bottom? Well, duh!"|
I remember being out for recess, and playing jump-rope with the little girls. I distinctly remember watching the high school boys play basketball with their shirts off.
I felt like an outsider because of my femininity, and I disappeared into a fantasy world that I watched on TV. I wanted to be Keith Partridge and live in Hollywood.
Today I'm 48 and I live in Hollywood, and I AM kind of like Keith Partridge.
Many dark years were in between today and those times of daydreaming & watching the TV.
But I never lost sight of my dream and have never been happier in my life!
David Cassidy (on "The Partridge Family")
I still love guys with long hair!
