BOYS ~












Steps

 


So my friend Mike in Arkansas

has two young boys and one


was walking through their


house one day, age 6, and


he saw my son's book on the


table Mike had bought and on


the cover is a color photograph


of my son when he was 4 years old


holding a guitar already like a pro


walking out of the woods and


Mike's son Owen pondered the


cover photograph and asked,


"How did that kid write a book?"


And his father told him, 


"One page at a time."

Bob,

Owen and I (Rachel and Arthur too) just back from our retreat we organize each May on tradition and community restoration. Today is Owen's 6th birthday. What a gift to read your poem as he turns another page.

stay close,
mike
