Day 7: Motorcar Magic


Every time that Oliver sees a car, that's what he says.

He loves to walk around the block pointing out all of the vehicles parked in driveways and on the street.  If a storybook has an illustration of a car within its pages, he'll be sure to let you know.  And when we go for a drive, he likes to watch the cars zipping by outside his window.

It must be a little boy thing.  I don't remember being particularly interested in cars as a child, but I do enjoy watching Oliver's current fascination with them.

The man responsible for bringing the motorcar to the masses has said many motivational things, but this one is my favourite...

"Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right."
- Henry Ford

Whether or not this attraction to automobiles lasts, there's a lot to be said for the advances in technology over the past century.  I wonder what the next century will bring.  With the right frame of mind, anything is possible.

Thanks for dropping by.

This post is part of my blog series, "31 Days of Words to Live By".  For the month of October, I will be sharing my favourite quotes and sayings while incorporating them into daily life and art projects.

This series was inspired by The Inspired Room, where you'll find other "31 Days" series among many other wonderful things!
