Beauty is made before it’s perceived.
It’s decorating the dinner table with a crown of fall leaves. Singing by a fire. Hand painting a dead tree. Speaking a kind word to a stranger, Carving little jewels from elderflower branches. Gathering moss in the shape of a mandala. Dancing to the beat of a brooding storm. Cooking a plate of wild mushrooms on buttered buns. Lighting a smoke free fire. Playing music with icecicles.
Living so you leave a beautiful track is a skill, a practice, a craft. It’s a learned thing, a dedication to tending relationships.
Your child can become a master of beautification. She likely has a knack for it too, whatever her passions. Children often do.
Making beauty is a way for your child to celebrate creation, decorating the world with the delightful trail of her imagination.
Beauty is gratitude manifest. It’s giving back in celebration of what is received.
