simply stated

“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.
