“To poke a wood fire is more solid enjoyment than almost anything else in the world.” ~Charles Dudley Warner, an American essayist, novelist, and friend of Mark Twain. He was also known for the quote, “Everybody complains about the weather, but nobody does anything about it.” I found it interesting to learn, according to Wikipedia, that he was born and lived nearly in my grandparent’s backyard in Massachusetts.
This quote, to me, sums up the treasures we discover when we live in the moment, which children are so adept at.
We have much to learn from building fairy houses, poking in the fire, skipping stones and the like.
