kinder finds the perfect place right in the middle of the great wide open.
“science has never drummed up
quite as effective a tranquilizing agent
as a sunny spring day.”
-w. earl hall
kinders find tiny ants, roly-poly’s, and baby spiders
when playing on the sidewalk
and decide to create a playground for them
using all of their pretty chalks.
“everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.”
and just like that
the city has emerged from a very long hibernation.
“hibernation is a covert preparation for a more overt action.”
gallup park, ann arbor, mi, usa – april 2018
the kinders celebrate the return of the sun
with no coats and fast feet and smiles a mile wide.
“i’m youth, i’m joy, i’m a little bird that has broken out of the egg.”
-james m. barrie
