Erin on reincarnation. Or on time. Or on a deeper truth of the universe that I can't yet grasp.

Pensive Erin

Erin to me in a quiet moment right before bed:


"Dad?  Next time I'm going to be a boy.  And a girl.  And a cousin.  And an adult.  And a woman.  And a chocolate bar.  And a ladybug.  And a poop. And a wall. I'm going to be all those things."

That sounds like a pretty good grasp of how the universe works to me.

I can't wait to be a poop

It's amazing isn't it? My friend's 2 year old son comforted her when their dog died by telling her, "No sad, Mom. He'll come back. One circle."

I love Erin's outlook on life!

WOW. Quite profound! I really don't want to come back as a poop though. A chocolate bar would be alright...
