be here now.

On Sunday my 18 month old nephew and I were outside in my yard and a gust of wind came by so strong it lifted most of the remaining leaves off the nearby Aspen tree and carried them all around us. “Look at the leaves” I said. He opened his little arms, tilted his head back and paused...feeling the wind wrap around him, listening and looking with intensity until he focused on one leaf in particular and followed it to the ground. Then he looked up and smiled. Together we were perfectly in the moment and it felt absolutely wonderful. Pure Joy!
