This week I heard... October 24, 2013
 

First, I will start with what I saw this week. This was my favorite moment. 

 
 “Trees are much like human beings and enjoy each other's company. Only a few love to be alone.” - Jens Jensen, Siftings, 1939

 

Another photo. If you are familiar with Humans of New York, the book and website by Brandon Stanton, then I know you can relate. If not, I know you can relate.

 

 
This week in microfashion. Did she choose the paint or did the paint choose her?

 

Children dress so fabulously and so beautifully because they have not yet learned that other people are judging their choices. They wear what they like. I want to wear what I like but I feel childish. How old will I grow before I truly understand that being childish is the truest way to be?

 

 

And, one more photo.

 
 What does it feel like the moment just before your mom wraps her arms around you?

 

 

 

And now, for what I heard.   

 

1. I erroneously asked a child how she was enjoying her Kindergarten year at MSGL. She responded, "I'm not IN Kindergarten. That's why I'm HERE!"

 

2. "That's a small story."

 

3. A friend was reading me a note from his lunch box. "Look! Look it! It says I'm going to my grandma's house. And I think I'm gonna get a Spiderman hat when we go to the store."

 

4. "Yeah. Let's do our maps."

 

5. "Where's the damn lizard?"

 

 
 File photo.

Rest easy. That darned lizard was found. 

 
What did you hear this week at MSGL? We hope you'll tell us.
 
Have a terrific weekend!
