A Keen Interest

Walking along a hiking path, I came upon a young mother and her son.  He was entranced by a fresh hole in the ground.  Probably dug by a ground squirrel or perhaps inhabited by a gopher snake.  He would drop stones into the hole, peer into it, put his ear to it.  His fascination and attention to this was unending and a simple and pure adventure in exploring nature.  And mother allowed him the time and space to explore.  The ability to attend so completely is a trait to be cultivated. This young child's will, and sensory perception and feelings were all in sinc.  It was inspiring to be there with him.
