Our lives are full of things and so it is with that of our children. The treasures of the world seem to dull our treasures within. The treasures exist within nevertheless, whether they be acknowledged or not, whether or not they shine through. Explorations into how we value all that is animate or inanimate and part of our world, seems a way forward to make the world a friendlier, calmer and harmonious place to be.
