Indulging Independence

bird flying

My fight for independence started off with quite a few yanks of my favorite toys as a child. I remember holding ground as my best friend tugged the tail off of my toy horse or was it the doll’s hair? I’m not sure I recall too correctly, but it isn’t hard to forget the little wealth of goodies that a child so fondly or rather possessively accumulates especially in the early years of development.

The time would soon come when I would learn to share my toys though, but then another hurdle would cross my path just as soon as I thought I’d learnt the art of sharing. My next hurdle- “They want me to share my food too,” I’d think, dipping my finger into a jar of Nutella.

Embrace Humanity

A newfound joy has me hopping into my car with my toddler certain weekday mornings as we head to the library- story time for toddlers! This generous program is quite popular in the community considering that it’s fun for toddlers and puts them in an environment where they can learn, socialize and just have a ball!

An orange leaf with brown specks looks as though it may have been showered with rust dust from a welding shop, and another leaf nearby that shows no signs of the changing season as it proudly shines in its yellow glory! But wait, I do spot just a dot, a tiny dot of reddish-brown right in the innermost fold of that leaf- change will come to it just as it does to all the autumn trees- surely but slowly. Transformation doesn’t happen overnight, unless you’re visiting a plastic surgeon! When we talk about reality and all things natural, slow and steady is how it goes. And yes, everything undergoes change, but it doesn’t have to be unnerving. Read More
