We loved this story of The Leaf Men by William Joyce. Who wouldn’t want to root for the Doodle Bug Guild? “Tiny of body but brave of heart, we always finish what we start.” It is very similar to the movie Epic that we enjoyed recently. I thought it was just perfect to begin our summer with a window into fantasy and the magic of pausing and taking a closer look. I hope we spend much of our summer this way. Life flies so fast and furious. It is easy to miss the miracles. I have been reminded of our mortality more than once recently. From my screened in porch, I see the window of my neighbor. She is in a hospital bed, slowly leaving. Her husband his holding her hand. Her children and care givers come and go and wait. I wish them peace and comfort…slow and easy like the welcome breeze on these days of summer.
