To see a child laugh is to witness joy unalloyed . . .

Check out this article. One of the more insightful opinion pieces you're likely to come across in the news these days!

"So when you next make a child laugh while feeding it crushed banana, treasure the encounter even more, for what you are witnessing is at once pure, beautiful and forever lost to you."

What are heavy? sea-sand and sorrow:
What are brief? today and tomorrow:
What are frail? spring blossoms and youth:
What are deep? the ocean and truth.

Christina Rossetti
