Tallulah. A girl who understands the cosmos so well. I totally trust this one. Probably because I'm not behind her all the time, she's a very responsible person, despite her young age. Every morning at dawn she climbs in the meditation tree, then makes plans for her day. And eats breakfast ("Winterrrrrr, is this parisian croissants day today?") She comes and goes, she has her life and let me read. Bliss.
Tallulah uses to wander according to her mood, and I wouldn't want to restrain her existence by asking questions. Kids need to be trusted. Oh, she's not so very private and uses to tell me a lot about her days. Yesterday, she took me to her worms stash and seemed very excited: "Look at these juicy ones, ready for a salad. Let me cook tonight." A very few persons have so thoughtful little ones.
The day I saw her with a pair of scissors and the brand new baby blanket, a brief reflex from my past bourgeoise life made me open my mouth, but happily remembered my new pattern and immediately had the intuition she was acting right.
— Oh Winter, look at what I did: I used the theorem you taught me and cut the blanket in two very equal parts, I can be proud of me.
This is the moment she began to talk about her new friend Sage. Sage and her baby brother. Tallulah was so eager to have a baby brother. Well, you can't always get what you want, right? Zephyr-Boreas was his name.
— Are there new kids next door? (I asked in spite of myself)
Oh please Winter, don't be stupid! Sage and Zephyr-Boreas are experiencing the wide word. The wild world as well. They travel by train, hidden inside the coke stock.
Do you know Sage already knocked out a giant bear? Or maybe almost knocked him out. Whatever, it was a giant bear. At least a very big one. I think it was a bear…
And Zephyr-Boreas, he was smiling on the other day, and guess what? A tooth popped up! Just like that. a very white tooth. Sage and Zephyr-Boreas are soooo lucky, their parents let them do what they need. I wish I could travel as well and discover the world. There is so much to learn, so much beauty I even can't imagine. Alas, ALAS, I'm stuck here in such an old fashioned family
Then I met the siblings. So polite children. So hungry as well. And finally, I offered them to have a bath. And washed their clothes. And mended the garments. And knitted new socks. And called their parents… So happy to hear from their babies. Bygone bears, bygone trains, bygone frozen nights among wolves and coyotes… sleep tight little ones, have sweet dreams…
