Book 1 Page 47
When I was young I would draw a symbolic version of a house,
with a square and a triangle on top and of course, a chimney top.
When I was young I would draw a symbolic version of a flower,
with a circle in the middle and the peddles protruding.
When I was young I would draw me living in my pictured house and garden,
with a circle for my head and stick lines for my body.
Now these are all very beautiful symbols,
But now I live in these symbols;
I live on top of a hill,
In a beautiful house,
with a beautiful garden with flowers.
The world is such a beautifully symbolic place, isnít it?
