Some birthday blocks

I found a birthday gift on my porch yesterday from an artist friend. Beautiful hand-painted blue and white blocks nestled in a hand-painted box. A note said that they were,

Sky Blocks, a cosmology

108 sides

for meditation

for peace

for love

I thanked her in my heart and admired them stacked up in their box but wasn't really sure what to do with them.

Thank goodness for five year olds who have no such hesitations! As soon as she got home from school, she oohed and ahed over them then started stacking them, moving them, playing with them. And as she did, I did to.

Thank you, Meg! And thank you, Maia!
