something beautiful

Lies I've told my 3 year old recently

Trees talk to each other at night.

All fish are named either Lorna or Jack.

Before your eyeballs fall out from watching too much TV, they get very loose.

Tiny bears live in drain pipes.

If you are very very quiet you can hear the clouds rub against the sky.

The moon and the sun had a fight a long time ago.

Everyone knows at least one secret language.

When nobody is looking, I can fly.

We are all held together by invisible threads.

Books get lonely too.

Sadness can be eaten.

I will always be there.

I don't know, I'd say at least a few of those things are true. Although maybe not in an ultra-literal 3-year-old way.

I'm fairly certain I've caught the trees talking to each other (and to me) during the day as well...

i agree with bktold--i think some of those are very true, especially that we are held together by invisible thread.

That one got me too - I preached a kids sermon last summer in which I actually tied people together with pink yarn, creating a big criss-crossing web of connections through the congregation.

Thanks for visiting, everyone!
