This image illustrates to me the basic reality that we find ourselves living in: that life is a journey and our tomorrows are dependent on every action we take and every step we make. To author one’s destiny is a huge responsibility that most of us abdicate from. ‘Choice’ remains our greatest gift whether we see it or not.
With Lea’s growing and intense fascination with the world of bugs during the last months, I have been finding myself almost daily with my nose to the ground in search mode. When you shrink yourself and force your perceptions to go smaller to enter that world, you become more and more intrigued by the beauty and wonder of it all. You become sensitized to little creatures and start to see them everywhere, and they are so fascinating! How can anyone not gasp at the skill displayed in the crafting of a spiderweb? They are so exquisite, so fine, and so delicate. I just hope she won’t bring the spiders home in her little box too! I love to watch them, from a little distance 🙂

Do you believe in fairies?
Do you leave them cookies and milk?
Do you build gardens, rings and circles for them?
Do you swear that you saw them?
Do you blame your naughty deeds on them?
Does innocence live in your heart? Does wonder? Does magic?
Little girls have all that magic!
