A Short Story


The ant climbs up a trunk carrying a petal on its back, & if you look closely that petal is as big as a house especially compared to the ant that carries it so olympically.

You ask me:  Why couldn't I carry a petal twice as big as my body & my head?

Ah, but you can, little child, but not petals from a dahlia, rather boxes full of thoughts & loads of magic hours, & a wagon of clear dreams, & a big castle with its fairies:  all the petals that form the soul of a little child who speaks & speaks...

Taste buds change often, so always    re-offer previously disliked foods.


Love your child & show them affection.  Hug, cuddle, read & talk to them as often as possible!


While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.
