Lessons From a Seven Year Old

 Jordan picked the first ripe blackberries has become a tradition, he always gets to pick the first ripened fruit whether it be blueberries, apples, pears, blackberries, peaches.  A seven year old can truly give lessons on enjoying your food.  He looked at each blackberry today, discussing color, size, and ripeness...he squished the first one and licked the juice off his fingers...then with a big smile popped it in his mouth, devouring every drop and tiny seed.

Everything he does, he does with joy...he runs across the back yard and his giggles ring out...he blows bubbles and his laughter floats across the trees.  He reminds me of the things that I teach...he lives them.  He is in the now, every minute of the day...he lives each moment to its fullest.

We have had a busy day, washing yoga mats, cleaning house, picking berries, and of course...having fun.  I bought the ingredients for smores, we are cooking out tomorrow afternoon and that will be our dessert...but we had to open the marshmallows and chocolate bars today...just one...please.

It has been a beautiful Friday, nice and laid back, hopefully the weekend will be the same.
No gig, no places to be.....just a weekend to hang out.  I hope your weekend is exactly what you's to blue skies, warm sun, and lots of laughter.

  1. The joy and wonder felt by a child is the most fun thing to watch. I try to keep some of that in myself. It does not always happen but I do try.
