People often tell me that I walk very slowly, that I spend a lot of time looking around me as I walk and that I become very interested in tiny things that others don’t regard as being significant. Well, I’ve walked many miles in the company of young children, my own and those entrusted to my care. When you walk with a child you learn to slow down, to be aware of your environment in a more attentive way. Children always teach us so much about ourselves, if we take the time to reflect.
Life is precious.
The world is full of beauty.
Every little detail can be interesting.
If I have ever walked a little ways with your child, be assured that I have loved every minute of the journey.
