Thank Goddess it's Freya's Day!

I just read an article about recent research indicating that the altruistic impulse emerges as early as 18 months. As the hopelessly smitten godmother of a beautiful toddler, I could have told them that. Since before she turned one, she has been in the habit of giving us her bottles, her "babies" and anything else nice that makes her happy, and in her sweet little mind, would obviously make us happy too. She's kind to her doggies, she laughs and smiles at everything, she trustingly lifts her arms to us to be picked up.

Maybe the world makes people hard and ugly later on, but I know, as plain truth, that at least some people are born good.

Why am I so sunny and optimistic today? Shame on you! You should be asking why so often I am not.

The sun is up, the sky is blue, it's beautiful, and so are you.

Possibly good news to be reported soon!

I wish people would keep some parts of being kids as long as possible. Like unconditional love and concern and sharing. All that stuff in "Everything I needed to know, I learned in Kindergarten."

Ah. I wish it too, but I'm afraid the world just doesn't allow that state to last very long. It's probably not a bad thing that we harden up a little. Maybe some day in the very distant future, humans will live in a world where we can afford to stay soft.

I believe the change will happen, but it'll take millenia. If only we can avoid blowing each other up, or making the planet uninhabitable for anything but bugs :)
