Fearless Grace. Adorable naïveté. Guided off the roof, she floated through gravity without restraint. Non-clenching. An easeful descent. She wanted to ride the big kid’s bike. Bold, toes pointed, barely touching the pedals. The training wheels came off too soon. Innocently deceived. Oh Precious little seed— petals sprouted before roots.
