A Quote, a Poem, and a Birthday.

“Know you what it is to be a child? It is to be something very different from the man of today. It is to have a spirit yet streaming from the waters of baptism; it is to believe in love, to believe in loveliness, to believe in belief; it is to be so little that the elves can reach to whisper in your ear; it is to turn pumpkins into coaches, and mice into horses, lowness into loftiness, and nothing into everything, for each child has its fairy godmother in its own soul; it is to live in a nutshell and to count yourself the king of infinite space; it is

To see a world in a grain of sand, 
And a heaven in a wild flower, 
Hold infinity in the palm of you hand, 
And eternity in an hour.”
~  Francis Thompson,  (1913) quoting the poem
 “Auguries of Innocence” by William Blake
Happy 6th Birthday 
to my nephew, Jaxson
Who took the BIGGEST breath to blow out his candle, 
and then spit on it instead. 
Ah, kids… 
; ) 
We could learn a thing or two from them.
Happy Friday!
