Kids boogie…

…What does the discerning nine year old boogie to these days? Ray Charles of course, at least in our house. For the past couple of days we’ve beem treated to a spontaneous surprise dancing show every evening before bedtime, put on by our own trio of dancing girls aged six, seven and nine. Today was Ray Charles’ turn to provide the groove. The downside is that I have to get up every morning at seven to take them to school but I guess that’s a small price to pay. Sometimes when we are really lucky we get some chocolate with the surprise. It’s all part of entering a kids world and it sure keeps me busy and leaves me less time for blogging. Hopefully some routine will set in during the coming weeks. The weather here is still very mild and all the leaves are still on the trees. Saturday is mushroom teatime again and I’m curious to see how my spirit reacts to all the changes that have been taking place. A very good friend of mine called me a romantic the other day. If that means Goethe and Beethoven then I plead guilty as charged. What have we learned stuck here in Plato’s cave? Plus ça change… That the circle is a spiral dance? That we are all children deep down and the wise are those who own up to their lack of knowledge. Despair is not a sensible option nor is greed or cynicism. Wake up to the child in your eyes. And keep taking the chocolate!
