DECEMBER 19 WATCHING

Pleasure may come from illusion, but happiness can come only of reality.

WATCHING

My best friend brought his niece and nephew to my home while he was babysitting them. We got out the inflatable pool, filled it up with water, and sat on the deck to watch the elaborate interactions of the kids as they devised the most comfortable way to ease themselves into the water. I was fascinated to see how completely present they were for the task at hand. Without any editorializing of how they presented themselves, not caring whether their swimsuits were of the latest fashion or how their bodies looked, they carried out their task, bursting out with shrieks each time they touched the cold water. Panting with excitement and apprehension, they culminated the experience with a wild plunge and more shrieks of shock. I could have watched for hours. And I did.
