Daily Life, 77

Thinking, this morning, about dreaming.

Busy school days---packed with transitions and the myriad details inherent to a smooth operating system when there are hundreds of people involved--understandably busy, but not conducive to providing space and time for children to dream.

Busy afterschool hours, too: music lessons and team practice and dance rehearsals and tutoring and chores and and and......

Just wondering where, in all of that noise,  a child could find even a small expanse of quiet space to dream....and wondering what the impact will be, later in life.

Not criticizing, just wondering....

See you tomorrow.
