when I take the boys I nanny on a walk they are so quiet. they look around, smile, point, wave, but they’re silent. they’re looking at what may be an ordinary every day walk/drive to some people, but with eyes that are growing and learning. that are curious. they always want to collect rocks or sticks or silly objects that to them are treasures, but to me, I always make them throw them down before we go inside. yesterday I took them on a walk and looked at things from their point of view. I was quiet, I collected, I took it all in. I thought, I imagined, I took a breath. so many people live their lives passing things by, missing out, looking at things with the wrong attitude and perspective. I don’t want to be like that, I don’t want to miss out. there’s so much of the world out there. I want to see it all, collect, find, experience, breathe, learn, grow. I think that’s what life is all about.
