The Day After

The wigwam is dismantled, paddling pool deflated, toys put away until another time. Orchid bulbs that the kidlets carefully planted upside down have been restored. The art is back within reach, candles lit once more. I've put away the Van the Man CD that we danced to yesterday, which exhausted everyone for naptime.
"And in the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter and the sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed."

I wonder how much all of us - adults and children - will have changed the next time we meet.
