surprises.

Standard

I spent some time this morning 

creating the beginnings of a fairy village

in the front garden

of a friend’s little girl

who liked to come and visit my garden

when she got home

she discovered the surprise

saw the fairies had moved in

right in her very own front yard

and gave it her full endorsement

 

“the whole point of life was you couldn’t ever be sure what would happen next.

sometimes what happened was good, sometimes not,

but there were always surprises.” 

― veronica henry, author

inclusion.

Standard

the kinders made a wonderful house for rocket the turtle,

with many rooms and spaces,

including his very own garden and library.

 

“until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things,

man will not himself find peace.”

-albert schweitzer

in line.

Standard

sweet kinder spends her free choice time playing with the doll house.

when i stop over for a visit and ask why all the people are facing one way

she tells me they are waiting in line for the one bathroom.

(if you look closely, all the way to the right,

you’ll see the one toilet with someone sitting on it,

as well as a chef serving food out of a window,

and more people and animals scattered around downstairs)

what an amazing real world scenario.

how can i not love every single day of my job?

‘waiting in line is a great opportunity to meet people, daydream, or play.’
