Is an exciting moment! Wonder about his future wells up, joy, hope, a beautiful future.
The plant that brings so much wonder.
Carries hundreds of babies on her back. Sometimes they fall off, crawl anxiously, find their way back on. The wolf spider mother is wonderfully capable. And a little scary. She was the width of a golf ball!! When she saw me, though, she was not scared. I tiptoed around her.
When I was a kid, I consciously remember how I never wanted to stop playing, stop imagining. I looked around at the adults who looked so bored and thought they had made the wrong choice by not getting on the ground with us kids and imagining they were cats, dogs, dolphins (and everything else!). I had forgotten about that thought for years because, alas, I grew up, into textbooks, responsibilities. But when my son begins playing like I used to, all of a sudden I’m transported. Back to the wonder of childhood imagination.
Offers its own soothing, cleansing type of wonder.
