Love is the power to see similarity in the dissimilar ~ Theodor W. Adorno
although she is bella, and she responds to bella as her name, her name is not bella. her given name is laura marie louise. bella is my 4 year old godchild, and the youngest of a family of eight. she is a particular and observant child, but then again perhaps all children are. just the other day, she jumped on me with a tight hug to greet me. as i placed her down, she looked at my shoes and told me to stay put, and ran away. she returned, pointed at her change of shoes, and told me, “similar”. in an instant she had looked me over, quickly identifying a ‘similarity’. she saw the similar rather than the dissimilar between us. seeing as bella Bella. seeing as a child sees. i am reminded to see similarity. bella Bella similarities are for thebestdressup now!
