Child of The Universe


“You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.”

 – from “Desiderata”, Max Ehrmann

Another Salt Spring Island beauty . . . I loved spending a good part of the day with this little girl.  She taught me about “Tree Spirits” (we found lots and subsequently had plenty of wishes to make), we picked Huckleberries, explored woodlands (inhabited of course by woodland Faeries which I’m certain only she could see) and walked through farm fields with many stops along the way.  It wasn’t the physical beauty of this child that touched me, it was her beautiful spirit.  She was so connected to and at peace with nature, living as close to the ground as one can get, so wise beyond her years  . . . a beautiful child of the universe.
