“Tide and Time”
When our babies are little, it’s easy keeping them safe. We can walk the low tide, show them where the holes are, where the sharp rocks are, and all those treasures that we enjoy finding, as well as playing together where everything is safe, and in amongst all of that, we teach them to swim in the shallows.
Eventually, the tide comes in, the hazards are hidden, the special but simple treasures are hidden, and the water is deep. We can’t point these things out anymore, we can only hope they remember where the dangers are and remember how to swim. And while they navigate these deeper waters, remember to seek out the hidden treasures which we had taken the time to enjoy with them, which are still there, but not quite so obvious now.
Things are so simple when the tide is out and our babies are little. #cpcau #lowtide #hightide #fatherandson #showingtheway #protected #innocentbaby #coloredpencil #coloredpencil #artshare #freelanceillustrator #commissionedart #beachwalk #shadows #storiesinart #gallerywall
