I intend to strive to view the world more like my nephews do.
WHY? Spending time with my youngest nephew this week (he's been sick) has been educational. He has no notions of cultural/racial differences--and just thinks that people are just plain fun! (He just announced the other day that when he grows up, he wants to be Mexican--because they have the bestest music, tv shows, and food!) In this politically charged climate, I find such an outlook refreshing and inspirational (don't know where you're from, but here in the South, race seems to have always been an issue and, instead of learning from each other and just having fun with each others' differences, it's used by those in power as a divider).
Same nephew, even in the midst of fighting for each breath, finds absolute fascination with creating from shapes and colors. He played for hours with several sets of blocks, creating builds taller than he is--would step back, look at what he didn't like and, instead of scrapping the whole thing, work on making that section better. And, of course, every time he realized I was nearby, he'd give me the "grand tour" of his accomplishments. As someone trying to rediscover her creative spark, I could really use this kid as my teacher! :D
