Tastes of Joy – Lessons from a Five Year Old

Many people think I am the teacher; but honestly, when you are the teacher of five and six year olds, you become the student because they really understand what’s truly important in life.  Remember the joy my friends….watch through their eyes. 

 

Taste  of Joy

Lessons from a Five Year Old

All that is significant in life is

The here and now,

What I am doing this very moment

Is the most important thing

And it has all my attention.

If I am painting,

There is no worry for where the paint splatters.

The joy comes from the act of getting it on the canvas,

Spattering, spilling, splashing,

Sloshing and galoshing,

As long as the colors are swished and mixed on the page.

If the music moves me,

Get up and move!

Drum beats on a desk

Scarves in a box

A rhythm from the world outside

Are all grounds to stop whatever I’m doing

And honor the composition.

A friend can pop up anywhere, anytime,

And there is no care

Names are not noted.

Wherever our imaginations takes us

Is the name of our game.

Life is simple.

Life is joyous.

Time stands still and waits for me.
