Sofia pre-wisdom

Sofia says, "Basically the ground is a market place that's free, that gives me all the life I want."


6 yr old Lucia back to speaking "Riddlish" this morning:


"Can a cupcake with tea see the Seaworld's sea? -Do you know what that means?"

"Uh, hmm. Maybe if you give in to your desires and eat fancy cupcakes, then you won't be able to separate the authentic ocean from the theme park version?"

"No! It means if the wind could sway hard why not break off one of the tree branches."



Btw, this is a correlary with her riddle from last week

Can a cake with tea shake the sake of the world?

Together they comprise a perfect couplet

Don't doubt your wishes

Sofia says to Lucia, "Sissy, don't doubt your wishes or they won't come true."

"Who told you that?"

"I figured it out. It's a pattern."

Advice given on a train

After a fight on the train over a book. Seemed to sink in a little this time. World is like a mirror.

When you share the world wants to share with you.

When you take the world wants to take from you.

"Fight" etc

Watching scary movies gives a thrill but leaves a bad feeling. Just like many things in life, like Sugar. Learn to avoid the instant gratification And think about long term peace of mind.

Right. Grief. Good grief. Bad grief. It all seems to much to bear. "Something time cannot erase" playing on the radio as I sit in my car, charging the phone battery. Radio's been with me today. Like when we got back to the camp from the lake I told the girls since they had just eaten sugar and been in the sun, they needed a quiet 15 minutes. Cyndi Lauper came on the radio belting, "girls just want to have fun." Hmm. OK then. I can't help but think that way. Maybe that did not happen for a reason? Maybe I'm just a sucker? but either way I decided it was wiser just then to let them play. With provisos of course.
