This is so beautiful. I think there is a magical age/stage with children between 18 months and 2 years when children are discovering the world, but don't have all the words to describe it. You get such a sense of their wonderment and delight and exploration. And an openness to meaning. I remember my eldest daughter picking up leaves from the ground and trying to stick them back on the bushes. And spending so much time looking, and listening, and touching.
Beautiful, Ali! I love this story of your daughter... it's so tender and dear. May we See the world through the eyes of a child, with a sense of wonder and delight. Thank you so much for joining us in this inquiry. Love, Alana
