Do I really need to say more?

A great quote from Adam Stanley. I have about 1000 books in my library and wouldn’t trade them for the world. But I do read them and pass them on to others when I have grasped everything in the book…then I pass the gift of knowledge on to someone else.

My mother and father told me that when I was a child.
And it still holds true today.

boys and girls in order
and start the dance
the circle would be large 
enough to hug the earth once.

If all the children on the earth 
call the adults
and they leave their affairs
and they join the dance
the circle would be 
large enough to hug the earth twice.

Then would come the birds
and in spring the flowers would also come.
to join the dance
and together man and nature
circle and hug the earth thrice.  

Too difficult to choose among the pictures of Steve McCurry, fascinated by the faces of children as he travels all over the world to capture them, so beautifully for us to admire.
