and guidelines, we
ready for life’s climb,
unaware that childhood,
untamed and intact,
takes the lead.

  2. I can hardly remember the feelings myself, but I see and feel the energy behind these words in my three little grandchildren. They are propelling forward at a rate that makes my head spin sometimes! I love this, V.J., and the photo, too! Precious!
