Cartwheel in the Snow

IT IS STILL SNOWING, PEOPLE!
I have to go the christening of my latest grand nephew and since snow driving is a knot in the stomach experience, I’m looking for confidence where I can find it.
I found it this morning. I am going to drive as confidently as this little girl does a cartwheel in the snow. It is a sculpture out in front of my library. As a life long reader and lover of books, it is the perfect artistic expression to go with a public library. I enjoy looking at every time I go.
The artist’s name I don’t know but shall get and update this post. It is a woman I know who lives in Rhode Island. I don’t know whether she is still alive but, here, in this little girl’s freedom and joy, she is surely still around.
My favorite moment involving this statue happened actually a few weeks ago. A little girl (around 4 years old) accompanied by her mother ran to the statue and got up on her tippy tippy toes to look down the girl’s dress to see if she was wearing underwear!
O, I know this sculptor would love this story and anyone who might read this as well!
