"Don't Blink", they say, "Because before you know it, they'll be grown." Three days ago I saw this spoon in this exact spot. Initial thought, "I wish they'd ask me before they take these spoons out in the yard." Then sensibility sets in and replies, "But you'd say, "no." About 2 seconds later the warmth welled up in my heart and I thought, "you know, there's probably others just like it somewhere else in the yard" -this yard, our last yard, and maybe even the yard before that. I kinda hope so. This picture is a replica of delight-a child's delight, a child's day to dig, kick back and let the dirt sift between small, busy toes. I really don't want to move it. It reminds me of what I don't want to go away.
