If Your Soul Needs Healing

His name is “Cape.”  He comes on Tuesday afternoons to be tutored in reading and writing.  Spending quality one-on-one time with this precious seven-year-old child has become my most happily anticipated and delightful time of the entire week.

In he walks, with his enthusiasm, curiosity, optimism, eagerness, exuberance, creativity, imagination and innocence.  For me it is like seeing the healthiest and most sacred aspect of mankind – – the way we are all supposed to be.

His fresh, excited and still joyful love of learning gives me hope and eager expectation for humanity’s forward evolution.  And after our hour together,  I always feel simply and completely happy.

“The soul is healed by being with children.”  said Fyodor Dostoevsky  (And it’s really true!)
