Elk Child Plays in Puddle

A mammal splashing in a pool just because it’s there is universal among those creatures who play.  A little boy or a little elk share something that goes to the very core of life.  It is more than humanity can claim as uniquely ours.  No,  this rises from the heart of the Creator and the mystery of glorious excess.  There is beauty in useless things, unnecessary gestures and splashing in pools of water just because they are there and we are alive today.  It goes beyond language finding it fullest expression in silence and a damp eye.
