When delight is enough…
We sat on camping chairs in a parking lot. A tribe of kids wearing blue fire on their heads frothed with unrestrained energy as the scene they were witnessing triggered deep, pure, primal joy and delight. Behind us, parents attempted to use the occasion to explain what it all means – the sacrifices our forefathers made, the fragile nature of democracy, etc, etc – I even heard a father explain what a simile is. Ugh. We were with the kids…
Sometimes best to be silent and absorb the moment.
Quiet the fireworks in your mind.
Just enjoy the show.
