steggy.

Standard

when you mix a scientist who loves dinos along with little people who also love dinos

you get bursts of curiosity, awe, and excitement on both sides

especially when one the of the kinder mentioned

it was ‘from the jurrasic period’ and another asked if it was ‘an omnivore.’

perfect match.

“did you know that the stegosaurus lived further away from the t-rex than we are from the t-rex in time?”

window of opportunity.

Standard

if you look closely

just to the left

of the little blue suitcase

 you’ll find

a curious young boy

hiding amongst

the summer holiday

window display

 the best part of it all

safe behind the glass

peeking out into the world

eyes open and full of wonder.

 

“if a window of opportunity appears, don’t pull down the shade.”

-tom peters

 

questions.

Standard

came across this open door

when walking in the park

  so many questions. 

 

“answers are closed rooms; and questions are open doors that invite us in.”

other worlds.

Standard

while watching the little league game

i caught a glimmer of shiny blue movement

out of the corner of my eye

 and suddenly there appeared

a shimmery mermaid

all scales and tails

coming from far away

skipping onto the field

staying safe in the background

to see just what

this other world was all about

and in an instant

she was skipping off again

returning to the safe world she knew

in the great bathtub sea

“it’s fun to peek into other people’s worlds

and see how they go about doing things.”

stop time.

Standard

two of my grandies at the detroit zoo

experiencing the butterfly house

firsthand

and finding 

just who exactly

is patiently sitting with them

waiting for his identity to be discovered. 

“wonder is the heaviest element on the periodic table.

even a tiny fleck of it stops time.”
