Here's a photo of the two of them:
Then a photo of Maggie prancing along with one of her prize sticks:
She reminds me of the Robert Louis Stevenson poem:
I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me,
And what can be the use of him is more than I can see.
He is very, very like me from the heels up to the head;
And I see him jump before me, when I jump into my bed.
The funniest thing about him is the way he likes to grow—
Not at all like proper children, which is always very slow;
For he sometimes shoots up taller like an India-rubber ball,
And he sometimes gets so little that there’s none of him at all.
He hasn’t got a notion of how children ought to play,
And can only make a fool of me in every sort of way.
He stays so close beside me, he’s a coward you can see;
I’d think shame to stick to nursie as that shadow sticks to me!
One morning, very early, before the sun was up,
I rose and found the shining dew on every buttercup;
But my lazy little shadow, like an arrant sleepy-head,
Had stayed at home behind me and was fast asleep in bed.

What if there are others who love us and who require an even more attendant listening in order to hear them because their voices are fainter? How do we hope to hear what they might tell us? Must we quiet ourselves and our lives even more than we need to do in order to hear the loving words of the physical ones around us? Can we even hope to do that before we have quieted ourselves enough to hear the physical voices?

Weina and we had a wonderful day today, rambling up to Freddy Hill Farm to harvest our own pumpkins. We got a hayride, ate homemade ice cream, and then came home and carved these scary creatures. Weina's classic Jack O'Lantern is in the middle. Kathy's alien is on the right. And David's African Frankenstein is on the left.
