one of the sweetest cards ever –

created by one of my kinders 

who “read” it aloud to me:

“I really, really, really  hope that your foot feels better very, very soon.”

(complete with a picture of me with one foot in the giant boot. )

“if you carry joy in your heart, you can heal any moment.”

-carlos santana




the playground community

was worried


unsure what to do

how to help

there had been an accident

it had happened to one of their own

one’s hair somehow

got wound around

the button of another

the two involved 

sat down next to each other

(no other logistical choice really)

one put her arm around the other

one big one 

helped them to unwind it

one turned away

unsure how to help

one stood by

ready to help

one stood at a safe distance

watching closely

helping by being near


in the end

all was well

once more.

without a sense of caring, there can be no sense of community.
