You are if you think you are

Kyrick tells me he is a good drawer.
"Do you know why I'm a good drawer?" he asked me.
No, why?
"I'm a good drawer because you draw good, grandma."
O-o-o-o-h-h-h-h
(I'm pretty selective
about my audience.
My grandkids are kind and
are my most enthusiastic drawing fans!) Several times during this visit, Kyrick asked,
"Can I use your drawing book?
I'm thrilled to notice his happy confidence.
His sister notices his fun, too.
"Ine daw . . . . Ine daw"
(I want to draw, I want to draw)
she begs
and is quieted when I hand her a paper and pencil.
Once finished, she announced,
"Ine daw a 'pidah."

Open your arms, artists of the world.
The younger generation is joyfully joining you.
