I borrowed my Dad's marbles to do this photo. I put the heart in the center with the key as a metaphor for being able to unlock childhood.
What makes you feel like a kid again?
Today's song, When Doves Cry by Prince
One day when my daughter was 8 years old she looked at me very seriously and asked, " Mom how long has it been since you rolled on the ground?" I laughed and said, "It's been a while." Elizabeth said, "Well, how about Now."
I said, " Sure let's go."
We went to Mom's, who lives across the street from us. And there is a big strip of land next to her house, perfect for rolling on! And we got on the ground and we rolled from one end to the other, which was about 300 yards one way, I have a very nosy neighbor and she came running outside and said, "What in the world are you all doing?"
I look up grass in my hair and say very seriously," Rolling on the ground would you like to join us?"
Her face turned red and she said," No, but you all are crazy!"
She turned around in a huff and went back in the house. Me and Elizabeth just laughed until we cried.
Have you rolled on the ground lately? You say it has been years. How about borrowing a niece or a nephew and trying it? You might find it liberating. Some things from childhood should be remembered while others discarded. Have a great day. ~Nita!~
