Myles wrote a song tonight. It blows my mind – and here it is (minus the tune of course, and with the spelling (which was also creative) corrected ):
Dolphins flying high in the sky
People don’t know why
People go on boats and they don’t believe it
I went and saw the truth
and people get hypnotised
My head starts to flow
There’s dragons in the skies
And there’s seabirds in the water
I compare this to the structured and controlled writing of a little Isabella – at roughly the same age. To produce 2 kids – so completely different is a wonder. And thank goodness this phenomenon, for the sake of the world. For every structured and focused achiever, we need a dreamer and artist.
Balance is important for each of us as individuals; as important as it is for society.
