To speak truly, few adult persons can see nature. Most persons do not see the sun. At least they have a very superficial seeing. The sun illuminates only the eye of the man, but shines into the eye and heart of the child. The lover of nature is he whose inward and outward senses are still truly adjusted to each other; who has retained the spirit of infancy even into the era of manhood. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

wonder
In this picture, my daughter pauses in her conversation with me as she is looking up.
Fall leaves
The look in her eyes causes me to turn around and capture this.

I want always to have young children around me. That way I will never forget to look at this world with wonder and awe.

I am grateful for having the privilege of seeing wonder through the eyes of a child every day.
