One Tiny Town

The girls worked for a hours today on a creation so consuming they couldn’t remember whose idea it was: a tiny town. This project is the satisfying stuff of summer days, with time and outdoor space sufficient to spread out with cardboard and scissors, markers, tape, and framing nails.

Dr. Spock – whatever his flaws might have been – never put down children’s play. Our Vermont world is up one small town today, and better off for its creation.

Flight requires defiance of gravity and is really, when you think about it, a bold act.

– Elizabeth J. Church, The Atomic Weight of Birds
