Granpa, Why is Forever?…

Quotes and Notes #218, June 16

“A child said ‘What is the grass?’ Fetching it to me with full hands;
How could I answer the child? I do not know what it is any more than he.”—Walt Whitman, “Song of Myself”—

In our grown up sophistication, it is easy to lose our childhood innocence. Sometimes it is good to go back in the history of our being and to again notice and ask about the unknown. The questions are not to be answered, but added to our feelings of asking, loving, and laughing.

Ask a question as you share a smile today
Everything is going to be all right.
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”

"Granpa, why is this called a 'balloon flower?"
