The little kid……

Each one of the many people I encounter has a little, and sometimes dirty, secret that they are unwilling to tell, share, or admit that they even have it……..an inner child.  They suppress her/him, bury the little bugger sometimes deep inside, or they let the stinker rule the roost and have a blast………this is the little kid in each one of us that begs to come out and play…..that is me, Sarah Smiles…………the inner child of a human being………….my human lets me come out and play almost daily……it keeps her young (she’s an old coot), full of pee and vinegar (see, that’s another sign she’s old….no one ever uses that comparison anymore)……she loves life, lives life, and shares her life through me…..the little kid in her.

Through her eyes she takes pictures…..lots and lots of pictures and shares them with everyone.  Not everyone can run outside, jump in a car, or climb the stairs to an airplane and venture away.  Taking pictures lets other people see the beauty out there.  A twig, grains of sand on a beach, a sunrise or sunset, leaves…..they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, well this beholder of two eyes planted in her head sees beauty in everything………I’m the little kid in her that makes her see that not everything is black or white, or gray, or in living color.  I make her see that texture isn’t always bumpy, it can also be smooth as silk, flat as a pancake, or crumpled up like a wadded up newspaper.

I’ve let her write several other blogs in the past…..this one will be different.  It won’t always have pictures to go along with it.  It may only have a story to tell…….the story I tell will be mine…the the little kid that lives inside an incredible human being…a mother, a wife, a friend………..IMG_7339

Take a walk along the rocky shores of this lake, throw a rock or two in and watch them skim and skip across the surface……..close your eyes, clear your mind, and meander to places that make your smile……..Come along and take an adventure through her eyes and my words……….let the inner child out you have inside you…..come out and play…………
