love is when you send postcards
more than to other people -
love is when they could push you down in the grass
and it doesn't even hurt -
love is the same as like
only you spell them different
more of the same, sort of -
Love has more stuff in it !
love is you give them
a leg off your gingerbread man
No two legs.
And a head !
This beautiful poem is from Ruth Krauss' childrens book ' I’ll Be You and You Be Me: A Vintage Ode to Friendship and Imagination, Illustrated by Sendak Check out the link below if you like the poem and have a few magical minutes reading and seeing the fabulous illustrations.
I am so grateful to have found Maria Popova's article on this writer.
I'm still experimenting , and hoping you are too. I'm finding it to be a great way of ' intending ' or focusing my attention each day.
We humans need a constant variety of ways to do the same thing.
What I mean is this experimenting is really a way of making a new gratitude list or ' experiment' .
Anyway it works in my brain and I hope you too are enjoying this method of adding value to the day.
