From the Minds of Children
by Darryl E
My children have provided a wealth of ideas over the years because they are filled with curiosity. They provide endless questions to be answered about things adults take for granted, and they see the world through innocent, naive eyes. They see links in unconnected events, allowing you to link them as you spin a tale in answer. Magic and mythology are real to children, and a walk in the woods with my wide-eyed, curious minds gives me every opportunity to spin new tales as we create our own explanations for the world around us. For example, a peculiar looking clump of leaves in a tall tree behind the house once became Brenda the Gnome, who guarded our family from whatever ill may lurk within the woods.
