The World Needs More Zelda

It's easy, so long removed from childhood - my own, and my now-grown children's - to forget what enormous weight our simplest words and actions might carry for the child who is watching us. 

A simple teasing remark, "She almost named you Zelda!", takes on a life of its own, dropped like a seed into the fertile imagination of a sweet shy girl with a stash of crayons and glitter, and the next thing you know, a new child is born from that verdant ground, and Zelda herself emerges upon her glittery-maned unicorn, Summer.

Welcome, little one! Bring that Fairy Princess power on. The world needs more Zelda.

"Zelda's Story"
Summer, Zelda's unicorn pony
Love (heart), Zelda
Great niece Zelda, formerly known as Morgan

If I had influence with the good fairy who is supposed to preside
 over the christening of all children, I should ask that her gift
 to each child in the world be a sense of wonder so indestructible
 that it would last throughout life.
