What kinds of images and emotions do corners evoke in you? In this week’s challenge, share a photo that plays on any of the word’s many meanings. Show your favorite street corner, or a cozy nook in your home where you feel truly at peace. Focus on a person or place that’s recently gone through a transformation — “turned a corner,” as we often say. Or stick to geometry and highlight the angularity of a favorite landscape or object.
Looks who Eric caught in the corner of the bedroom window. Two little boys checking out the passing train. Both of the boys started off fearful of the loud train passing by and who can blame them. The whole house trembles as it rumbles down the tracks. In the summer, the screaming whistle fills the house demanding cars to stop and wait.
To overcome their fear we would laugh as we grabbed them up in our arms on our way to the window and wave at the passengers. Now they run to the window themselves or, if on the front porch, run to the little bench to watch the passing trains as they wave goodbye wishing them a safe journey.
I read this quote by an unknown source and thought it appropriate for my grandsons.
“Don’t ask him to live in your world, visit his world instead.”
This is how I feel when with the little ones, always wondering what they are seeing and feeling as they experience the world anew. Around every corner a new experience awaits them. I try to see the world through their eyes and sometimes remember the hidden child within.
