And Childhood Appeared So Perfect

I went to the grocery store today.

And there was a little girl.

Her hair was wildly and joyfully untamed.

She was tan and scruffy and full of summer.

She was walking behind all of the other family members.

But she wasn’t walking through a store.

She was strolling through a story.

And childhood appeared so perfect.

  1. I wish I saw more scenes like this! I was definitely a reader and took a book wherever I went, but today’s children seem to have such competition for their attention. I would definitely have smiled to see this little girl lost in her story. You illustrated her perfectly! 🙂
