The Great Light Inside a Child's Heart

I love this photo, of a very young girl - who was so very curious of the person behind the lens, and with playful eyes and makeshift hula hoop - 'invited' that artist to play. This young child played outside a charcoal factory in a deep, dark, and most depressing area of Manila - and yet, in spite of all the many reasons that would have caused so many of us to become overwhelmed with our circumstances... her spirit, was invincible.

Hope is everywhere, but mostly - it's in the eyes and smiles and hearts of our littlest planet dwellers. We can learn much from them - if only we allow ourselves the heart and opportunity... to 'play'.

Life should be filled with makeshift hula hoops ~ and smiles that break through even the darkest days.

For the original article, you may 'hop' over to my most favorite spot "elephant journal" - where a group of this world's most talented, crazy creative spirits are coming together to effect great change one single heart, and one single moment at a time.
