I was chatting with a six-year-old the other day while playing with Ciccia Maria. We were throwing a stick and watching her retrieve. At one point, as he picked up one of the last remaining dandelion heads, he asked "do you believe if you make a wish, it will come true?" Of course, I answered, we need to believe. Later on while sitting with his uncle, I recounted the story and he inquired, " you really believe?" The realistic side of my brain immediately wanted to answer, no. But, the other side of my brain...the one that usually wins...wanted to answer a resounding, YES. In this life we need to the small things, in the big things...we need to think that there can be more. So after a little thought, si, credo nei desideri, tanti desideri...yes, I believe in making wishes, lots of them...even some for you...and in hoping they come true...for all of us...and with dandelion heads this big, who wouldn't?
