The walk to school

That was fun. This morning I walked my youngest son to school. 

We talked about all the things we could hear  on our walk, from the birds to the distant sound of motorways and roads. 

We talked about how builders could build a shorter way to school and that if you folded the town in half you could get to school by climbing a mountain. 

Then we talked about what if…there was a scooting tunnel to school, or a massive bridge in the sky with a ladder up to it outside every house where a child lived. 

Then we arrived at school where we hoped that everyone would have the chance to think about these and other  amazing possibilities and how we might make things better for everyone. 

Especially this week. Especially in this twelve months. Especially in this world.
