a conversation

"mom, wouldnt it be funny if everything talked?"
"that would be funny. and loud."
"yeah. but everything really does talk it its own way."
"does it?"
"trees talk by waving in the wind, and snow talks by floating. signs talk by showing people where to go. the sun talks by going up and coming down. clouds talk by changing colors..."
"i guess you are right*. everything really does talk. i love the way you are thinking."

*mind completely blown by a five year old

nothing like something being said that acutally causes you to sit down to think. Yep, I sat down and thought.
