mud pie

yesterday i put aside my natural resistance and went with anna to scope out the kiddie park.

it was fun to push her in the swing but boy was my instinct right.

it was a nasty thing in my eyes, particularly because there was cement everywhere.

what is there to discover, i wonder, when there's no nature around you but only a man-made structure to play with?

and our village looks like this.


no lack of space or natural beauty as you see.

which brings me to this book that i thought was really cool.



i can't help looking at that sad kiddie park through a child's eyes and wish that there was more interesting stuff to research, get dirty with, scoop up and splatter around in the company of friends.
