have we become a culture that is so immersed in "entertainment",
so far removed from what is real,
a culture so overwhelmed and filled with "stuff"
that to see people, children who love
ignore the false,
could care less about the "stuff"
i just found so amusing,
that a kind neighbor of ours stopped by
to ask if our children would like some games,
some toys, some movies.
she told me how she always saw them playing outside,
so she thought that maybe they didn't have very much
because my children spend most of their time in nature,
she thought they were void of things.
it was abnormal to her that children would want to be
and this made me sad.
children raised on television, on so much stuff,
that they are out of touch with real life,
that it has become out of the ordinary for
a child to just be.
