“The sun illuminates only the eye of the man, but shines into the eye and the heart of the child.”
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Succinct. To the point. True.
These are some of the words I would use to describe the verbal expressions of a child. Favorite utterances I’ve heard from little loved ones of my own include:
“I love you. I done. Peace Out.”—Could there be a more thorough farewell?
“Because, too.”—Is there a better way to explain, that which cannot be explained?
Recently, when I was developing some pieces for an art show, I found myself bringing images of children to the forefront—and evidently, some of my concerns as well.
Perhaps, I felt they could say it best.
