This morning I watched the kids run out to the maple tree in back field - roughly the same relation in height to each other, but one year older than in the picture below.


Sibling system orbiting.

"Our siblings. They resemble us just enough to make all their differences confusing, and no matter what we choose to make of this, we are cast in relation to them our whole lives long."

What to make of this little nation of three...

re-post:When I took this picture today, my children appeared to be seeds carried away by the wind, or small animals venturing away from a nest.

This, I wish for them -

May the atmosphere we breath
breath fearlessness into us:
fearlessness on earth
and fearlessness in heaven!
May fearlessness guard us
behind and before!
May fearlessness surround us
above and below!
May we be without fear
of friend and foe!
May we be without fear
by night and by day!
Let all the world be my friend!

- Atharva Veda XIX, 15
