“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” ― Albert Einstein
“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” ― Eleanor Roosevelt
I choose to experience life through senses. In every sense.
And it is through the experience of little wonders, big love fills our lives and learning is our light.
“I think us here to wonder, myself. To wonder. To ask. And that in wondering bout the big things and asking bout the big things, you learn about the little ones, almost by accident. But you never know nothing more about the big things than you start out with. The more I wonder, the more I love.”
― Alice Walker
Davionn – “Mommy, what kind of animal does bacon come from?”
Me – “A pig.”
Davionn – “Oh! We get milk from pigs too!”
Me – “No buddy, we get milk from cows and goats.”
Davionn – “But pigs make milk too.”
Me – “Yes, they do. For their babies. But we don’t drink pig milk.”
Davionn – “What other animals make milk?”
Me – “All mammals make milk. That is one of the things that makes us mammals.”
Davionn – “Are chickens mammals?”
Me – “Nope. They are birds.”
Contemplates this new information.
Me – *while laughing* “What?”
Davionn – *Very matter of fact* “Yeah! Bacon is the master of the universe.”
Just further proof that I NEVER know where a conversation with these littles is going to lead me.
All hail Bacon.
Pennies for a Picture
Do you have great photos, have seen an incredible image in a magazine, or have a special newspaper article that you’d like to turn into a work of art, to display in your home, but custom framing and canvas prints are just too expensive?
Why not decoupage them onto canvas for literally pennies a print?!
The BEST Play Dough
A family favorite in our home is German Pancakes. Quite simply, they are crepes, but the batter is mixed just slightly thicker than traditional crepe batter. This particular variation on the recipe is a fun way to brighten a grey morning, or surprise your birthday boy or girl, with a warm, festive breakfast.
