Pumpkin Shake-down

La la!
You can see that Peter Pan has already arrived at our house. He is very proud to be wearing this for Halloween festivities.

Will picked out what he called a 'pink' pumpkin. And he made the farmer's whole day when he took the money I gave him and went to pay for it all by himself.
No rain has made the pumpkin selection a little less bountiful than in recent years.
Will and Phin, in the hayride trailer.

From 'To A Young Son' by Julia Johnson Davis

In your face I sometimes see
Shadowings of the man to be,
And eager, dream of what my son
Will be in twenty years and one.

But when you are to manhood grown
And all your manhood ways are known,
Then shall I, wistful, try to trace
The child you once were in your face?

MY LITTLE ONE - By Tennessee Williams

My little one whose tongue is dumb, whose fingers cannot hold to things, who is so mercilessly young, he leaps upon the instant things, I hold him not.

Indeed, who could? He runs into the burning wood. Follow, follow if you can! He will come out grown to a man and not remember whom he kissed, who caught him by the slender wrist and bound him by a tender yoke which, understanding not, he broke.

Poem

We are so very glad that you are happy...
long may you keep so, my dear boy...
May you go on as well
as you have begun.
- Charles Darwin
