pumpkins to coaches

Know you what it is to be a child? It is to be something very different from the man of today. It is to have a spirit yet streaming from the waters of baptism; it is to believe in love, to believe in loveliness, to believe in belief; it is to be so little that the elves can reach to whisper in your ear; it is to turn pumpkins into coaches, and mice into horses, lowness into loftiness, and nothing into everything, for each child has its fairy godmother in its own soul.

~Francis Thompson

Following the theme of pumpkin-love, I thought this quote to be perfect for this week’s wisdom. Who says a pumpkin is just a big piece of fruit or a mouse is only a rodent to be trapped? Didn’t Cinderella find them to be so much more?

Living in awe, seeing the world through your inner child, is one sure path to a rich and satisfying existence. Open your eyes today, don’t miss hearing the elves or meeting your fairy godmother.
