Learning to Feel

"Awaken the senses
Bring them to life
Let them stir
Throw off musty blankets
dig out
claw through dirt
run through fog
shout, sing, dance, laugh, cry

Hi! I hopped on over from your comment on Mama Manifesto. At least I think this is who commented there? if not, oops.

Just wanted to say that I love this post. And the whole blog really. I took a quick peek at the community blog as well. I will read more when I get a moment-good stuff!
Nice to "meet" you!

Simile Metaphor Collection

Elijah after running: My heart is beating like a coconut rolling down a hill.
Elijah on urination: Pee is like horses galloping out of the gate. Once they get started you just can't stop them.
Elijah: If school were a human I'd give it a wedgie.
Elijah: I am like a hot rod and I just want to be a plain old Ford
Elijah on the fruits of the spirit: I've got them all covered except self-control. Its like a tiny green tomato and the rest are all big ripe ones. Especially love. Its like the biggest tomato we saw in the garden tonight.
