Poem by Sark

I have always loved this poem by Sar
Stay loose.Learn to watch snails.Plant impossible gardens.Invite someone dangerous to tea.Make little signs that say yes!And post them all over your house.Make friends with freedom & uncertainty.Look forward to dreams.Cry during movies.Swing as high as you can on a swingset, by moonlight.Cultivate moods.Refuse to “be responsible.”Do it for love.Take lots of naps.Give money away.Do it now.The money will follow.Believe in magic.Laugh a lot.Celebrate every gorgeous moment.Take moonbaths.Have wild imaginings, transformative dreams, and perfect calm.Draw on the walls.Read everyday.Imagine yourself magic.Giggle with children.Listen to old people.Open up. Dive in.be free.Bless yourself.Drive away fear.Play with everything.Entertain your inner child.You are innocent.Build a fort with blankets.Get wet.Hug trees.Write love letters.

Wow! That's so inspiring. I'm going to copy that and post it in my sewing room and at my desk at work. My favorites are "invite someone dangerous to tea" and "giggle with children."
We recently had a friend's daughter for the day and we built a fort with blankets in the living room. My husband pretended to not know where we were and then "surprise" us by popping in the tent. She giggled herself silly. We laughed til we cried! Three is a great age.
