We brought two prisms and hung them- one in the kitchen for morning light, one upstairs for afternoon. We catch the rainbows in our hands, make them dance. Reed says we need one for every room, and I agree. I agree heartily.
Enjoyment, fun, beauty: we over-complicate them. Balls and blocks are the best toys, and yardless, my kids are happy to circle the house again and again, hunting bugs, jumping in puddles. And me, I like prisms that make tiny rainbows on my kitchen walls. Playing records.
Enjoyment, fun, beauty: I forget to find these things and try to buy them. I forget to light the candles. I never forget to check my e-mail.
Maybe someday the wind will blow the other direction. Today I will order seeds. I will remember to buy snapdragons in every color.
