Have you ever noticed how much a child
lives each moment so fully?
Painting stones is so absorbing as the creative energy
is allowed to run freely.
What can be so interesting as we walk in nature?
It has been raining so there are plenty of them
along the path we have chosen to walk.
A new pretty shell is chosen for his collection!
Look at this one which has been broken.
What is the snail's story?
Every single thing is a reason to stop and observe
and children show us how important it is to take the time to do this
in a world where so much frantic rushing seems to exist.
Such fascination in the shapes of these shells
which once held a living being.
and now it's time to climb and play
totally in the moment
feeling all those lovely stones under summer sandals
and to rest at the end of the day with furry friends!
Children teach me how to take the time
to enjoy each moment fully
excluding all else
I feel so lucky to have a grandson
with whom I have a privileged relationship
and feel blessed when I am in his company.
