on magical flying things...



"When the first baby laughed for the first time, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies."

—J.M. Barrie

i have never read this charming quote before...but i have been charmed by every babies laughter!

the air must be so still to be moved only by paper thin wings...

Delightful, Leslie. It's so true, there is nothing like the sound of a happy baby.
J.M. Barrie seems to have known a thing or two about children. I wonder if this quotation is from Peter Pan.

Those do look like fairies but I am assuming they are dragonflies. So beautiful.

Leslie said...

Delightful, Leslie, although I did kind of cringe at what might be the 'thing' in the water. I couldn't tell from my side list. I'm glad it was a log! In Florida you never know. Wonderful quote---sounds right---a baby's laughter is magical. :>)
