Dear Daughter's Post -- October 16, 2004

My 4 year-old DD knows that I enjoy blogging. Being at a highly imitative age, she wants a blog of her own. I've offered to set up a real one for her, but she'd rather do her own one.

She dictated to me a post:

"Here is my blog. My computer is so hard to work on. Remember my book, Leaves, that I worked on and it was so hard, too. Then turn off computer."

By the way, she made her own computer and I didn't even know it. She glued a blue piece of construction paper to a green piece and bent to blue to make a screen. She took a building block and traced around it in four different places to make keys. I just noticed it today, I don't know when she did it. I don't plan or initiate art activities for her. I'm glad to see confirmation that I don't need to, she'll do it on her own and it shows more creativity than if I showed her a project to make and told her how to do it.

Dear Sparky,
I love this sweet post about your dear daughter and her inherent creativity. As I read it, I thought about the metaphor this is for your own innate ability to explore your spirituality, without anyone telling you how or leading you. It is already within you - everything you need. However, I know how helpful it is to have spiritual friendship, and the opportunity to dialogue can bring tremendous clarity. So I would welcome you to continue to write about this, your thoughts, your inspiration, and your experience. Include what you are reading, what meaning you glean, how it relates to your life and how it speaks to your most difficult questions. This journey, as it has been called, is an amazing ride. Hang on...

Peace to you,
