oh, to be five
this afternoon i was combing through the mess-of-the-weekend around the house when a few of #1's paintings caught my eye. five year olds have such magic and they don't even know it. they have the skills and just enough knowledge of the world to start performing their interpretations of it on paper, yet they're not old enough to criticize their work or even to think of it as work. i should look at her drawings more often. in them i see what's going on in her mind, which i'm not always able to read easily. i see the magic of what it must be like to simply draw what's on my mind without thinking about who is going to see it or whether they'll like it or not.
so, this afternoon, i'd like to be five again. (but just for an hour.)
