Toddling



I was stopped in my tracks the other morning by a tiny person who had just learned to walk.

He lurched towards something. Something neither his father nor I could see or appreciate. He seemed to walk towards nothing, but there was a smirk of delight on his sweet face, he was heading toward something that previously had been out of his reach, unimaginable in those dimensions.  " I can walk towards that now, " he was thinking, "I am capable of that now."

Finally, his father picked him up and head in the opposite direction, away from whatever it was that had caught his attention.  His day had begun, he would walk towards many more things and exmaine many things before the day would be over.
