it is basic chemistry in action
but there is something magical about fireworks
watching the night sky explode in colour reaches deep into the child in my soul
but seeing my children's excited faces and hearing their exclamations of delight
was even more wonderful than the sparkles and sounds in the sky.
the firework display we attended last night was part of the 25th anniversary celebrations of the school my children attend.

one of the most appealing qualities of children is something we have all lost: innocence.
with my daughter in the awkward transition stage from childhood and adulthood
i see how innocence is gradually fading from her eyes
and i want to press pause
and hold for as long as i can.
i want her to see things with the awe and imagination of childhood
delighting in simple joys and seeing magic in the everyday
i want her soul to remain pure and beautiful
untarnished by the realities of a cruel world.
