rainbow connection

“We live in a rainbow of chaos.”

– Paul Cezanne

In this house, we believe in magic. And that it can hide in the simplest of things – if only you care to look with eyes widened by innocence. . .If only you remember to forget the whys and the hows of it, and accept a thing for all that it is. Dust-motes dance through sunbeams, sparkling to a symphony imagined in our minds. Prisms are crystalline diamonds illuminated in enchantment. We are surrounded by a world that was created for us in astounding detail and brimful of miracles, but somehow. . . we always forget to look. We’ve forgotten how to see.
She never forgets. She doesn’t know that there is any other way to be. . .
Stop! Take a break! Look through the eyes of someone who doesn’t know any better. Contemplate the universe as if you’d never heard of science. Have faith in the miracles and believe in the magic. All of this world has been given to us. Chase the next rainbow you see – and maybe you’ll find that you can catch it after all. . .

    *nods* I love this post!! We have a “rainbow circle” that shines through the peephole on our front door EVERY morning. Kayda is absolutely fascinated by it.

    This was a great post to read and very true. I try to remind myself that what is old to me is new to my girls – and to see things through their eyes.

    I read you last post, too, about the “warning” label on the toy – it gave me a good laugh!!!

    Very pretty picture of T. This ornament photographed amazingly. I think these two pics are among my most favorite from your blog.

    When I’m with T, I always believe. Even if she asks too many questions, she still doesn’t question the magic of the rainbows. =p
