Lessons I learned from a Three Year Old

 To live life;
with an absurd imagination and playfulness
~ask endless questions
~make unexpected statements
~try out new words
~sing out loud
~create free form art
~color outside the lines
~experiment with new foods
~high five everyone who asks
~ become a trailblazer
~stay up late giggling
~enjoy red, green and orange melons with each meal
~talk to cows, "How now brown cow?"
~say "I love You" a million times a day
~dance with abandon
~be decisive when there is a fork in the road
~be focused about playing
~everyday is an adventure
~take naps with your dog
~live like you don't have a care in the world.

Learning and re-learning these things has given me so many new ideas for writing children's books that I hope to take time to write this summer in between my jewelry design and art shows.

My main character is my yellow lab, Summer and her adventures in the mountains and on the ocean with many characters joining in the fun.  I haven't decided whether to self publish or to shop for a publisher yet and so any suggestions are desired and welcome.

  1. Sometimes I wonder if my children learn more from me or if I learn more from them. :)
