"TO FLY, WE HAVE TO HAVE RESISTANCE" - MAYA LIN
Grandma and Grandpa Goto are pleased to have our grandchildren visiting and of course we are working to convey some of our life lessons. Yesterday, we were having one of our philosophical discussions with our 10-yr-old grandchild who showed us her favorite quote from her pocketbook THE SPIRIT OF FLIGHT - Believing in Ourselves. We talked about about what "resistance" means in our life.
The drawing was done one day last week as a potential cover page for a story, but also represents some of the ideas about being grateful for issues and problems in our life that gives us practice to become the "resistance" needed to fly.
Then Grandpa got creative and wrote the following poem:
THERE IS A YOUNG DOCTOR
WHO THINKS THIS WAY
A LITTLE DIRT IN OUR FOOD
AND LIFE IS OKAY.
IT TOUGHENS OUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
AND TOUGHENS OUR MIND
TO GET READY FOR THINGS
THAT LIFE OFTEN BRINGS. -sg
