Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, And though they are with you yet they belong not to you. You may give them your love but not your thoughts, For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

The Rainforest was our world away from the world. A cozy overgrown oasis, nestled on the valley side of the Hollywood hills. Just below the world famous Mulholland Highway. A place to escape our regimented youth and get "back to nature".

We've all seen (and laughed at) those "Slow children at play" signs. Well, in Sasquatch country, slow children are more likely to fall victim to Bigfoot. A great way to encourage your kids to exercise and run laps. Just to make sure they get away, while the neighbor kids become prey.

Today's social climate shifts almost daily. Depending on where you live, what you do, who you associate with, and those you simply casually pass by, social acceptance on ANY level seems unsure. People of color in particular have been aware of the ever-changing environment in which they exist. Always. Whether accepted or shunned, self-esteem and independence are paramount to daily living. Children in particular need reinforcement on so many levels. Maybe this message can reinforce that idea.
