"Genius is the recovery of childhood at will."
Arther Rimbaud (Who quit writing at 20 years old.)
My children keep tugging me into their world, and it seems like my first reaction is to wanna pull back. I don't exactly know why this is. I guess it just seems like I always have something "more important" to do at that moment.
Yesterday we had a good amount of fresh snowfall with temptures hovering just above freezing. I know from childhood experience that those are the perfect conditions for snowman building, which is just what we did to kick-off the day. I am convinced that adults need children smooshed into their lives as much as the children need us smooshed into theirs. We need to find ways to keep blending it together. It is as if the world of adults and the world of children are like those salad dressings that need to be given a good shake before you pour it on your salad. I think our lives just taste better this way.
