On our walk to the park one day, Smudge was quite taken with the sound the wind was making in the trees. She squealed with delight when we walked under one large tree, just as the wind dashed through the branches and swished them around over our heads.
I found a smaller tree with branches close to the ground and wheeled her stroller right into the middle of the leaves.
Smudge thought that was grand, thank you very much.
I love going for walks with this little one. She listens to every little sound, finds great delight in many things that most of us pass right by without even noticing, and teaches me to stop and look at the beauty all around me.
What a little Zen Master she is.
