The Toddler

This morning I watched a toddler and his Grandmother in the park.  With one hand held gently by Grandmother the other hand of the child pointing, pointing at everything he sees.  He was discovering, questioning or curious - maybe all those.  But what was clear and without any doubt was his sense of WONDER.  HIs face said it all, no words necessary.  He pointed:  look at THAT.  What is THAT?  I want to be closer to THAT!  I like THAT. HIs pointing at the world, eyes filled with wonder reminded me of the way I sometimes feel in the world.  There are moments which are so quietly marvelous that I’m stopped and must simply look and take it all in.  To continue this sense of wonder in the studio is my aim.
