Never, Ever, Ever Forget to Play.

“A little nonsense now and then, is cherished by the wisest men.” ~ Roald Dahl

I splashed my way through the most massive of rain puddles, and just because I could. I splashed so hard with both of my feet, the water almost came up to my nose.

And, as the neighbor was casting a most disapproving glance—upstairs, his little one was watching gleefully from the window.

I wish I could grab all of these littlest of hearts and tell them this just one thing…

That no matter what bigger things may come into their worlds—the thing to remember is to never…ever…ever forget to play.

So,

“Go and play. Run around. Build something. Break something. Climb a tree. Get dirty. Get in some trouble. Have some fun.” ~ Brom, The Child Thief

Namaste, my most beautiful friends —I love you in the most special of ways…and, remember:

“Fairy tales can come true, it can happen to you
If you’re young at heart.
For it’s hard, you will find, to be narrow of mind
If you’re young at heart.

You can go to extremes with impossible schemes.
You can laugh when your dreams fall apart at the seams.
And life gets more exciting with each passing day.
And love is either in your heart, or on it’s way.

Don’t you know that it’s worth every treasure on earth
To be young at heart.
For as rich as you are, it’s much better by far
To be young at heart.”

~ KING, RILEY B.
