day 14 | cattail fuzz

That time we spent the evening in the country blowing cattail fuzz in each other’s faces. Because we could. And it was simple and magical and breathtakingly beautiful. Kinda like life.

“Do not ask your children
to strive for extraordinary lives.
Such striving may seem admirable,
but it is the way of foolishness.
Help them instead to find the wonder
and the marvel of an ordinary life.
Show them the joy of tasting
tomatoes, apples and pears.
Show them how to cry
when pets and people die.
Show them the infinite pleasure
in the touch of a hand.
And make the ordinary come alive for them.
The extraordinary will take care of itself.”
– William Martin
