so busy

my good friend gillian and her sweet boy paid me a visit the other night. he is so full of life and wonder. everything is fascinating to him and so new. you can actually capture some of your own sense of naivete again just by watching him take everything in.

after they left, i had to laugh because i suddenly remembered when i was a little girl and my grandmother commented to my parents that she wished she had half as much energy as i did. i just could not figure out what she could have meant by that. but now i know.
