For all that has been, thanks; to all that will be, yes.
– Dag Hammarskjold
Had the most lovely time on the bus home today with dear Paris.
What a lovely delight he is to be friends with.
An absolute blessing.
He is impish, but wise.
As playful as a puppy dog,
as knowing as an orangutan.
He is so many things all at once ~
a teacher, a friend, a companion, a listener, a story teller
all in the span of the 45 minutes commute
This afternoon I got off the bus a couple of stops early to walk home
we walked across a gully,
and he plunged his face into a wattle tree just to smell it.
What a wonderful wide world it is
when we can make these friends from strangers
and they can open new universes of laughter, tears and sharing.
