Wow, incredible the mind of children...... Its so wonderful how in tune Katherine was with that part of herself, the same part many of us lose in the smoke and scurry of hustle bustle.. Sad, too, how this overly politically correct world of today would frown on such things as something demeaning when nothing could be farther from the truth. Like twain's books being pulled from school shelves because inside he writes of personal relationships with American Indians and slaves - without the slightest bit of disdain - rather celebrating a great, serenely romantic part of our pasts...

Never erase yourself, never erase that part of where you live...
