The Prophet, On Children
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you, and yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Goodbye David ~ We'll miss you.
We love you,
Nana Shey Shey and Papa Russ
David, our grandson ~ the little Woodsman.
He left Michigan this week to go back "home" to California with his folks.
This visit...record winds. Last visit...record low temps.
See the last visit departure 2 years ago. Watch this.
