What is essential...

“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret;
it is only with the heart that one can see rightly,
what is essential is invisible to the eye.”

~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
He turns our living room into a playground filled with colour and energy.
And he shows us this sacred world of pure and shameless play.
For us, his parents, it is a lost world. Vanished bit by bit as we grew older.
But he takes us by the hand and leads us back to purity and simplicity.
And while the three of us are sitting on the floor together I realize that all my life I have been searching desperately for the happiness that was already present....and always will be.


  1. Sas, this is the secret...Purity and simplicity always accompany a child's heart. Take his hand and follow his lead :-)

    He is such a handsome little prince

  2. Esencial y necesario...

    Thank you, thank you ...

  3. Children teaching parents how to BE... what a wonderful world it would be:)

  4. Just perfect, Sas and such marvellous colour. One of the many gifts of motherhood is learning from our children... hugs to you x

  5. Children are our best teachers, aren't they? It does us good to lose ourselves with them in play! :)
