Focusing on Sticks

"Now my tree-climbing days long behind me, I often think about the lasting value of those early, deliciously idle days. I have come to appreciate the long view afforded by those treetops. The woods were my Ritalin. Nature calmed me, focused me, and yet excited my senses." Richard Louv

I have spent weeks watching him gather sticks, building shelter-forts, and then taking them down just to build them again.  Such focus!


  1. So much fun! I love boys and sticks......and I hate boys and sticks.....I think mostly the love wins out.
    How are you doing? How's that sweet baby?

  2. OH what a wondrous time in his childhood!
