What do you see when you gaze at me with those trusting new eyes? Who do you believe me to be? Who do you believe you are to me? Or does it even matter? Perhaps we are both the same entity. You have so much to explore and discover and learn. I have so much to share and recount and unlearn. We can teach one another life lessons along the way. We will both grow older but there is no rush. You’ll learn to walk, then to run, then to soar. I’ll learn to slow down, and to breathe more deeply. I’ll learn to notice more details and to be more appreciative, even of the little things. When you close those curious new eyes at night, where do you think I have gone? Where do you go in that fresh young mind? Maybe you are already walking, running and soaring. I’m already slowing down and breathing more deeply, and appreciating life more. Especially the little things… like you.
