Laughter is the best medicine.
Just ask Penelope.
She dressed Snowie in a tutu…poor doggie.
And found the result hilarious–in a tears draining from eyes, giggle-fit kind of way.
Our hope today…that you would see the world through the eyes of a child and find happiness and laughter in your day.
Halloween has come and gone – even if the candy is still sticking around!
When thinking about the feel of the world Penelope inhabits, my mind often changes, based on the type of thing Penelope might be up to, or how I imagine it might look or feel to her and her friends …
Halloween is ghostly. It’s a bit magical. The streets are transformed, from safe and predictable, to spooky and unpredictable.
Inverted, one might even say …
Here, the kids stand, bathed in the glow of another open doorway. Or maybe the glow is reflected off the treasure they’ve come to collect? The kids themselves are re-made, their identities fluid and ephemeral, like the drawings they spent so much time sketching out weeks earlier as they eagerly anticipated and planned their Halloween alter-ego adventures …
You know that moment when everything stands still…
when only the waves whisper alongside the gentle murmur of the evening breeze…
and the stars glimmer in the dark as the sun sets on the painted horizon?
These things I love about camping.
Penelope Bloom is doing what I love to do.
Standing in silence, she takes it all in.
It’s amazing how the majesty of nature can calm the energy of a child. In this moment, Penelope remembers all of the fun she had playing during her busy day. She wonders on how such a busy place could now be so peaceful. Contemplating it all, she stores it up as a treasured memory.
