children have the magic ability to make you slow down. to view the world through a lens that contains questions and magical answers.
growing your own food is one thing.
but really being awestruck by a strawberry.
being low and close enough to the earth to notice the balled rolly-pollies in the mulch.
the color of anthers. counting how many petals are on a peeking chive blossom.
that's the good stuff.
(sorry if i got any songs in your head ;) )
