break.

Standard

 

friends take a break from recess

in the empty water table

while still waiting for some snow.

recess can be so exhausting.

we came outside today

with

no

mittens

hats

scarves

neckwarmers

or

snowpants.

just

coats

and

boots.

we discovered

that it had

magically turned into spring.

and

when we said

coats weren’t really needed either

there were

shrieks of delight

and a

mad dash

to peel off those coats

at last

to

throw them down

after the long winter

and

to feel a taste of real freedom once again.

what makes a man?

Standard

 it took a small village of kinders to make a man.

Image

 

they hiked through the deep snow.

Image

 

they went in the playhouse to eat some snow and get pumped up about it.

Image

they worked hard to push heavy loads almost a big as they were.

Image

they built. and they built.

Image

and they moved mountains.

Image

and they crowned him with a prized possession.

Image

and we celebrated with a song and a dance around the man they created.

Image

 

and in the seventh hour, they rested. 

 Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world;

indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
