A cup of bokeh

A cup of bokeh, originally uploaded by Martha☆.

I was SO moved by what my Flickr contact Martha said along with her photo, I asked her if I could post it to my blog. And I'm thrilled she said yes!

She has quite the way with words, and all those insights are so very true! Really makes me think back to my own childhood and remember all those things.
Enjoy her special brand of whimsy! I sure do!

Here's what accompanies the photo:

I am hereby officially tendering my resignation as an adult. I have decided I would like to accept the responsibilities of an 8 year-old again.

* I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle and make a sidewalk with rocks.
* I want to think M&Ms are better than money because you can eat them.
* I want to lie under a big oak tree and run a lemonade stand with my friends on a hot summer's day.
* I want to return to a time when life was simple. When all you knew were colors, multiplication tables, and nursery rhymes, but that didn't bother you, because you didn't know what you didn't know and you didn't care. All you knew was to be happy because you were blissfully unaware of all the things that should make you worried or upset.
* I want to think the world is fair. That everyone is honest and good.
* I want to believe that anything is possible.
* I want to be oblivious to the complexities of life and be overly excited by the little things again.
* I want to live simple again. I don't want my day to consist of computer crashes, mountains of paperwork, depressing news, how to survive more days in the month than there is money in the bank, doctor bills, gossip, illness, and loss of loved ones.
* I want to believe in the power of smiles, hugs, a kind word, truth, justice, peace, dreams, the imagination, mankind, and making angels in the snow.
