Faith, Trust, & Pixie Dust: Florida 2016

“why do we have to grow up? i know more adults who have the children’s approach to life. they’re people who don’t give a hang what the Joneses do. You see them at disneyland every time you go there. they are not afraid to be delighted with simple pleasures, and they have a degree of contentment with what life has brought – sometimes it isn’t much, either.”
