are you ready?

In the silence of "not doing" we begin to know what we feel.

the little children do know how to meditate, don't they? they can watch a drop of rain travel down a window pane or stare at a cloud or a cobweb thinking nothing in particular ... sometimes I can revert back to that.

Sometimes you can say so much with so little.
A look, a particular expression and it can be captured and made to be worth a thousand words.
Love the post title too: makes me feel the whole world is just waiting to be explored, even for an adult.

I LOVE pictures of children looking out of windows (like the one we got at the museum). You can feel the wonder and just know the wheels are turning.

One of my favorites of your photographs...and that's saying something! One of the problems I see in today's world is that children aren't encouraged in the "not doing" - great quote.
