Splash du Jour: Tuesday

In this modern world where activity is stressed almost to the point of mania, quietness as a childhood need is too often overlooked.
Yet a child's need for quietness is the same today as it has always been -- it may even be greater -- for quietness is an essential part of all awareness.
In quiet times and sleepy times a child can dwell in thoughts of his own, and in songs and stories of his own.

-- Margaret Wise Brown --

Have a great Tuesday!

When I wasn’t getting into trouble for my tom-boyish escapades, this describes my childhood.
