Make an Adventure

Every production of an artist should be the expression of an adventure of his soul.
-William Somerset Maugham
My son and I were taking a walk the other day when this ominous dark cloud came up. We were quite far from our destination when it began to rain. Asked if he wanted to find a safe place to wait out the storm, he replied, "No, let's keep going and see if we can make an adventure."

Today may you find such child-like trust and abandon in your own heart. May you see in your circumstances the potential for discovery and adventure, no matter how big the challenge and may the road ahead lead to peace and great joy!


  1. There is nothing more fun than dancing in the rain except when you're about to catch pneumonia from it. There's too much child-like wonder that is lost in the growing up process. I think if people were to be more child-like, it would cure many of the world's woes.

  2. What a dear little companion, such an inspiring presence. I feel refreshed just reading this. Thank you for these gentle words.


Your lovely comments make my day!
