The Toybox

I remember a comment made by a friend of mine, who also happens to be an educator upon noticing how one of my youngsters would tip out the toy box and see what was there, as opposed  to quietly rifling through to find the toy of choice.

What a profound comment this was. Perhaps the world consists of those who select carefully and quietly and those who have to tip out the whole toy box to see what is there first. I probably belong to the latter group. Perhaps this is a difficult and challenging way to live. Once the toybox has been tipped upside down, everything eventually has to be tidied up and put away.


However there then follows a  moment of  tranquility, when you have seen what’s there and have the peace of knowing what you won’t be bothering with again.
