An Alien At my table

I found my youngest child having a chat to her alien mate that sits looking at her at every meal time. I think he looks more like a bird but still I was careful not to say so....

" Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world".............

Albert Einstein wrote that . Good stuff eh?

I remember seeing the face of a wizzend old croan in the wooden floorboards of the bathroom when I was a child, and talking to it every time I sat on the loo......
Its very easy to crush a child's imagination with organised playtime, strict school curricular, not being able to meander from what has to be taught. Not much time to smell the roses, play in mud or talk to the alien at your table.

This photo I took at a friend's farm at the weekend. The smiling rock. Now if I had had her childhood, I probably would have sat talking to that rock instead telling it all the secrets, joys and woes of my world.
