Mud-Luscious World

"The world is Mud-Luscious and puddle wonderful"
E.E. Cummings

 There is an eagle in me that wants to soar, and there is a hippopotamus in me that wants to wallow in the mud.

Carl Sandburg

“You can't go splashing through puddles of happy without getting some of it on you.”

― Becca Wilhite

For some reason or another your pictures remined me of Flanders and Swann - "Mud, mud, glorious mud."
If only I were still brave enough to run through the mud like your children in these glorious photos.
