Watching is an essential part of a writer’s life. But do you always know what you’re looking at?
Tiny moments can have a big impact.
My favourite moment of today belongs to someone else. Two someone elses, in fact.
Two males, one large, one small. Lying flat on their backs in the backyard, arms wide on the green, green grass.
The Builder in work clothes. Mr4 in a dress-up wizard cloak, his ‘Turtle Cat’ costume.
They are looking up at the spring-blue sky. Laughing.
One deep belly laugh. One little belly giggle.
Just thinking about it makes me smile.
Such a great visual. Don’t we all need to find time to do these simple things. Like making shapes out of the clouds. I want to know the joke. What makes a boy and his Dad laugh hysterically. Probably nothing. x
This made me smile, it’s so sweet. I can just picture them….
those little moments are the most powerful.
What a great vision. Keep watching.
That’s beautiful, what a precious moment..
So much said in so few words. I aspire to be able to write that powerfully. Thanks for your inspiration.
It’s moments like these that create memories that will last a lifetime. x
Lovely moments to capture and remember in photos or words 🙂
My first smile of the day – thank you Ali – beautiful post 🙂
When the Huzz and my son laugh together it is adorable and contagious! They have the same sense of humour and can often be seen rolling on the ground together whilst I look on slightly confused!! The simpliest things eh!
In the simplest things – pure joy.
Gorgeous. It made me smile too
oh that is so lovely. I remember doing that as a child too. watching the clouds, finding shapes etc. thanks for sharing that xx
Pure gold! Thanks for sharing…
It’s the little things. Which aren’t so little.
Thanks for sharing that moment. Makes my heart all warm just visualising it. xx
