Learning from Children

Adults rarely come up with completely new thoughts. We have insights on old problems but most of what we think is shared by someone else somewhere in the world. Children are different. Their minds are making sense of the world around them. They tell stories in their own language and don’t worry whether the details have to be true. Walking with a 4 year old and 7 year old they told me that we all have an invisible bucket inside us. If we are kind to others and think of loving things to do we fill our buckets up with love. If we are unkind our buckets are empty. They stop to explore the world that they walk through. I am told that you can even see caterpillar pooh if you look hard enough.
