Innocent play - time slows down - make belief world where rocks become gold and a stack a castle.

I have never thought of this, but at what age does make believe evolve into fantasies.

Do you watch Mad Men?

That quote is sweet and brings tears in my eyes. Looking at those happy cousins does the same.

I'm a little teary today.

I believe it's at that age when one learns about synonyms and the act of examining one's own life.

Mad Men? Never heard of it ... (I watch very little TV though).

These two girls, my granddaughters, are the light of my life. :)

I've taken some tentative steps with both of my granddaughters as regards introducing them to the concept of my land art sculpture work. They both took right to it ... although, I believe a lot of the interest is having permission to splash around in the water. :)
