The Mischief of Minions

Kids, Family, Insanity…

The Simplicity of Children


It is amazing to me how simple children make the world seem if only we take the time to watch them.

We go to fall festivals with enticements like “pony rides” and “petting zoos” and there is nothing wrong with that.

But at the same time, give kids some pumpkins, leaves, sticks and some room to run around and they are just as happy! The games they make up on their own when left to their own devices are hysterical!

If only we as adults could remember how to be that happy to be alive, and to find so much possibility in a mere pile of leaves!

Happiness Is…

Happiness is a big pile of glistening yellow and gold cold, wet leaves found on a trip to the backyard with mom.

It is also knowing that in this one fragile moment the world and the sky and the trees are all hers, and adventure is everywhere she looks and hers for the taking.

I simply smile, and watch.
