To a child, a door is just a door, a hinge is just what holds it up, and the difference between brass and copper is less important than whether you’re going to get ice cream afterwards.
my kids wonder why,
i like melancholy music
and the sound of rain
swish swish swish; tires through puddles
the nature of life is to kick you when you’re down
the nature of living is to keep trying to get up.
(For Erik and Mrs. Fitzpatrick)
The older you get, the more people you know that have died.
