Letter to a little person

To new tiny person,

New being, seed of human, bundle of questions with a whole world to get to know, remember to delight in falling over. Babies are wonderful at getting up again. Keep that. Remember that imagination is your strength. Wonder keeps you alive. Ask as many questions as you can, always. Play until you fall asleep exhausted, and then keep on playing until you grow old, then keep on doing it some more. Because those things are the secret to beauty and growth, new little friend. Dream those haunting dreams that make us walk and make us doze with a smile and are, in reality, hope – the warmth that softens day time.

I hope people treat you well and let you be, and that we can get our shit together and make the world right for you.
