Today at the park I climbed on top of a jungle gym with my son, and everything looked so different. It was only about 15 feet difference in height, and yet an entire perspective shift. I was eye-level with the lush green treetop canopies, some just starting to turn their fall colors, which I couldn't see from the ground. I felt like a kid again. As I talked to my son about all of this, he asked what was so special about it... I told him I hadn't climbed on top of a jungle gym in a long time. "About 70 years??" Ummmmm, no. But about 20...!
I felt incredibly creative, and realized it was the perspective shift that was stimulating and allowing my brain to start firing in all different ways... The human brain craves this synapses stimulation, and the soul responds. It's simple, yet amazing. At that moment I started thinking of all of you, what I wanted to write to you on the blog... Then I took a breath. I stopped. I watched a hummingbird. I kissed the top of my son's head. I decided the blog would come to me later, and I conciously became very present in the moment. It was a gift, and I was going to enjoy every minute of it... which wasn't long... soon we were off chasing each other in "Sand Shark Tag." (Why am I always it?!?! Haha...)
