Peter Pan Strikes Again

4 Jul

While she slept she had a dream. She dreamt that the Neverland had come too near and that a strange boy had broken through from it. He did not alarm her,for she thought she had seem him before in the faces of many women who do not have children. Perhaps he is to be found in the faces of some mothers also. But in her dream he had rent the film that obscures the Neverland, and she saw Wendy and John and Michael peeping through the gap.~ J.M. Barrie~ Peter Pan

He has done it again.

The spirit of the boy who never grew up slipped in, and possessed our small family.

The boy recognized in some mothers eyes.

He tempted them with hunting the great snappers, Mr. Big Guy, and his wife, Mrs. Big guy.

He tempted them with starting fires and gathering berries untill their bellies hurt.

They could not resist.

Riding out thunder storms in the tent eating food from a box.

No baths.

No manners.

Just love.
