magical answers

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.
