They did it on purpose, of course...gathered a whole mess of things that bring joy, and wonder, and magic, and delight into our lives. You'll find 'em just beyond the gates and right through those tunnels. Beauty is in there, the smell of freshly popped popcorn is in there, huge wonderful hot dogs are in there, the smell of freshly baked Cinnamon rolls, big ol' ice cream cones, music that makes your soul happy and light...parades...characters we've known and loved all our lives...wishes...dreams. Inside those gates you'll find adventure, smiles, giggles, and absolute joy.
Is it any wonder we keep coming back to Walt Disney's Magic Kingdom? We find happiness here...we forget the complexities of modern life...sail away with pirates...or fly with Peter Pan over Neverland...or take a cruise into deep, dark mysterious jungles. We climb up into a big ol' treehouse, visit a haunted mansion, get thrown into a briar patch with Brer Rabbit. We set on the hard curb waiting for a wonderful parade...or stand in absolute awe watching fireworks over that
Gathering the things that bring joy, and happiness, and wonder, and delight into our lives...bringing happiness to others. Yep, there's a lot of wonderful stuff just beyond those gates...
Thanks Uncle Walt. We love you, still.
Adios for now. Talk to ya on down the trail.
