Reason #5167 why I love having kids is that they say the most amazing things. Unselfconscious things with keen observation and self-awareness. Like this simple two-minute conversation I had with Luke yesterday while he was drawing a picture:
Luke: Mom, I just noticed something interesting!
Me: What's that, Luke?
Luke: I noticed that when I'm listening to fast music it makes me want to color quickly. And when the music is slow I want to color slower instead. Isn't that interesting, Mom?
Yes, Luke. That's very interesting. Just a beautiful simple introspective moment of a six-year old, dreaming, creating and discovering the power of music to stir the soul.
