Sometimes, I wish I could see the world through their eyes -- a world saturated with wonder and endless possibility. A world where imagination is kindled by the slightest spark, and is never snuffed out by constraints like time, money, or "practicality."
And yet, it's a world that can be completely overturned by the slightest mishap, from the "wrong spoon" to catastrophes such as bedtime. Sometimes I'm very glad indeed to be "all grown up."
Perhaps it's enough to catch just a little glimpse of their world now and again...
And where is this window to a different world? My favorite little corner of the gardens at the Governor's Palace in Colonial Williamsburg -- in fact, my Blogger profile pic is a snapshot in the same spot about 10 years ago! In reality, all that lies beyond is a pretty field -- but with the imagination... well, anything is possible!
