On the way home from a family trip to the library, while looking at a Princess and the Pea book, Selby announces: "All those mattresses would squish a pea."
"It's just a story, so anything is possible," I reply.
And then, from the backseat, a revelation it took me over 30 years to come to understand: "Are we a story someone is reading?"
And so she gets it...at 4! Or perhaps at 4 she has just not yet forgotten we have the power to create our own experiences - to write our own stories.
So yes, little one, we are a story. We are the creative expressions of spirit. And collectively, we create a universal book that, I am certain, "someone" is reading.
That day in the car I could almost feel Selby making the connection...if we are a story, then anything is possible for us too.
And it is, you know. We simply must remember.
