on Dad's phone.

half an hour

Little Old Road

*ins*inspired by my favorite street light*

There is a light,
a very simple light.
He might not think he's worth much,
this light.
He stands alone on his little old road,
shinning down on a little path you can go.
His tall wood pole,
and little lamp head
hide himself in a beautiful pine tree bed.
There's a little hole in his pine tree home
and he peeks his head out as if saying,
"I'm here all alone."
But this little light here
he's not really simply at all.
His purpose might be a lot more deeper.
His little head is a rest stop for a bird on a journey,
or a shelter for a squirrel he'll keep company.
He can lead the way down his little old road,
or comfort a kid who is lost and alone.
I told you once and I'll tell you again,
this light is not simple,
he is a beautiful bright friend.
And he has made a difference,
on his little old road.

When did I grow up?

This video is brilliant, and I absolutely love it! Doesn't it bring back memories of countless hours playing pretend. The beautiful princess lost in a forest and saved by her handsome prince, or the brave astronaut making the dangerous trip to the moon, or the crazy pretend lands any child's imagination can create, or how just the face that when you close you eyes and open them again your blanket fort has transformed into the most spectacular tree house. Really the possibilities were endless. All you had to do was walk through that "door" and you were in the most amazing place your mind could imagine.....
ya I miss those days sometimes
