The Importance of Original Content
I was a literature major in college, so I had to share what my 10-year-old son Theo wrote in class the other day. The theme was "I am from...":
"I Am From"
I am from a place where red and white paintings come alive. Couch and flies bumping around.
I am from a place where there are noises and chirps. Cars and trucks coming and going. The sound of the creek as solemn as me.
I am from a place where souls descend and rise, just to say hello to me.
I am from a place where people say, "hi, how was your day" and "do this or that."
I am from a place where spaghetti and meatballs come alive. Mashed potatoes mashed up in my stomach.
I am from a bed of memories.
