Here by Glimpses Known


Julien and neighbor kids in the street in front of our house. Any time we want to do something out front, be it sweeping the porch, checking the mail, or, in this case, trying out a new gaslight, we have a crowd of curious kiddos wanting to visit and/or help. The children here are rarely shy and they spend their days outdoors, playing with each other and greeting passersby instead of sitting in front of TVs, attached to the umbilical cord of some mind-sapping, flab-spreading video game.

Wonderful picture. I like the way the kids are all in a line and everyone is lit by the lamp's glow and the background is purple-blue. It makes me think of ancient cave dwellers sitting around their hearth.

I do wonder what will happen to humanity if a time comes when we lose the ability to relate this way because we're always plugged in.

This is one of the wonderful memories I have of our voyage in Madagascar. Because of the lack of electricity, everyone gathers of an evening around a fire for fellowship, and it gives builds and conveys such a sense of unity and community.
