Musicians are children who take a stick and bang on a can, or stretch a rubber band and listen to it twang, who whistle or sing.

Poets are children who fall in love with words like "murmur," "spoon" and "click."

Painters are children who take crayons and make designs everywhere or who dip into finger paints and push it around on a piece of paper.

Architects are children who put twigs together in the back yard or who pile stones on each other.

Potters are children who play in the mud.

Writers are children who make up stories.

Actors are children who tie towels to their backs and pretend they are superman.

Dancers are children who skip and spin when they hear music.

As George Bernard Shaw put it "We don't stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing."

May you never lose your childhood.
