'Sometimes I think of things I'd like to happen and life gives them to me,' said the small girl. 'They land in my lap and if I'm not paying attention I don't even realise they're there.'

'I should do more looking,' said the small girl. 'More living in the moment. Maybe life's given me exactly what I need.'
(Pause.)
'Wait,' called the small boy. 'I'm coming up!'
'Come on,' said the dishevelled little owl.
