can I get a witness?
show and (don’t) tell
highlight quote from kinder show and tell today:
“I’m going to show you what I brought,
but if you see my sister in the hall
don’t tell her that I brought it.”
-w, age 5
“not everything needed to be brought into the light, he knew.
not every truth needed to be told.”

each one can be true.
both on the same kinder playground
under the same spring sun
sitting on the same wooden bench
each sharing a complaint with the other
one says that she is so hot that she is sweating
the other says that she so cold that she is freezing
both are sincere in describing what they are feeling
each accepts what the other is saying
and listens without judgement.
“truth can be stated in a thousand different ways,
yet each one can be true.”
