Of sleeping Angels

Every once in a while, I stop myself from the daily grind and routine to realize what life is ultimately really about. Every day, we go on, from design to design, hope to hope and we layout plans for many years.

But once in a while, I stop. And look. And listen.

I stand at the door to my angel's room. And look. I look at how fast she is growing. How fast things are changing. How fast she is "becoming". I look.

I listen.
I listen to her breathe while she sleeps. How calm, how quiet, how perfect. What is she dreaming ? Where is she going ? Where has she been ?

I continue with my day. But I stop.

Once in a while.

Very sweet, Kev. Have you asked her any of those questions directly?
