Quips & Quotations 22

A new year means a new Thursday theme. 2015 will be about quotes and quips that I particularly enjoy or thoroughly relate to. I hope you will too.

A Silence Full of Stories

Our 3 acre yard consists of this: the house and yard, a stretch of prairie grass, then the bush.000DSCN1262The bush has seen forts built, trees climbed, and paint ball madness from behind wood and tire barricades. It has heard giggles and gossip and war cries. It has grown a fully roofed hide-out and lured an old trailer into its mosquito-rich depths. It has yielded for our 6 kids and their friends wood ticks, scrapes and natural treasures. Queer sticks, odd stones and hours of imagination run riot.000DSCN1271And whenever I mowed our lawn, I mowed a path through the prairie grass to the bush  for the kids.

Recently I had cause to comb the depths of the bush for some sticks for a craft and I discovered a world gone silent yet bursting with story.

Our youngest is nearly 17, the only one still living at home. The bush is quiet now except for the birds and frogs. 000DSCN1278000DSCN1296
