Sometimes it’s worth it to stop and say “Hello”! We’re good for asking how things work, the kids are particularly good at this. Talking to people who love what they do is always enlightening, they’re bound to teach you something new! #askmorequestions #childlikewonder

Aaron’s two favorite toys right now are two blocks with wheels on them and this cardboard box! It’s always been the little things that catch this boy’s attention! #childlikewonder #thelifeofaaronjohn #spotmedaddy #thanksamazon #iamaaronhearmeroar #rawr #dadsofinstagram

What do you want? What do you need? What's stopping you from turning dreams into action, into realization? Is the what, a who? ...is it you?

On occasion....something as simple as sunstream through the clouds while you walk to the corner store will prove utterly cinematic. A thousand frames from past, unknown and future lives flash in quick, almost simultaneous succession. Three dozen songs that are the soundtrack to your beautiful awful life play as one while you smell the particular shade of musk belonging to the long ago player who kissed you one night in Southbank...which in turn is experienced as the thousand yard stare of the vagrant you locked eyes with when you were ten and standing on another waterfront in another city of what could easily be another world or lifetime.

Stills of the moments that make up a soul: the smell of your grandmother's baking when you were five, experienced as a tactile emotion caused by a Johnny Cash song. The time you stared at a slate-surface winter sea as a younger woman and wanted to die of love and pain...melding with the memory of yourself as an old, old man in his penultimate moments on earth. Yourself in utero. A billion specifics. An infinity of nuance and permutation. Your first kitten and your last. A yurt on the tundra in an unknown time and place. That time not so long ago in a sundrenched park when you closed your eyes just to open them to the startling, simple Truth. The defining moment of your life.

While I was in a headstand, the tiny child next to me grabbed her mom’s arm and said, “Look mom, she’s strong, like Wonder Woman.” I told her that all women are strong and wonderful. She then asked for a popsicle. I’m not sure if that lesson will stick...

Sometimes in the morning when my mind is full of childlike curiosity and zest for life, I wonder to myself is there more to this life than ripping and biting my mother's sleeves? No there is not, because destroying her things is everything. #zestforlife #childlikewonder #introspective #philospher #iwonder #raccoonsofinstagram #petraccoon #raccoonsofig #alfred_raccoon #trashpanda #mapache #toocute #babyraccoon #cuteness #datface #cutebabyanimal #cutebabyanimals #reasontosmile #cutestagram #adorbs  #cutiepie #littlegoblin #енот

Got to babysit this little goober this past weekend. Having grandkids, especially 3 year old ones, makes me feel so old...where DOES she get all that energy? Lol 😂 She is smart, sassy, and full of questions about everything. Her favorite one is “Why, Nana?” I love the wonder that children naturally have...it’s sad that we too often lose that when we grow up.

Never forget to keep joy in the things you never thought you would do as an adult. Like flying kites, building forts, and playing in the sand... ✨🌊 #beach #beachday #sand #smile #teepee #driftwoodteepee #wanderlust #travel #travelphotography #adventureisoutthere #childhoodmemories #childlikewonder

This might be one of my most random posts to date.... These are "axolotls", Ya'll. They inspire me! Let me tell you why. They're known as Mexican salamanders or a Mexican walking fish. Although the axolotl is colloquially known as a "walking fish", it is not a fish, but an amphibian. I stumbled upon them while falling into the deep, never ending, rabbit hole that is web searching, and I have been obsessed with them all day. One, they're freakishly adorable (operative word: freak). Two, they spun me into a joyful childlike state of wonder and awe (that I used to have much more of, before life happened, ya know)? Lol. I would like to adopt a few, please. Their colorful goofy faces make me happy. I am grateful to be reminded that the Universe is amazing, strange, and possesses such incredible intelligence and beauty (they regenerate their own damaged/missing tissues and even brains). And, imagine, I never knew they even existed!! Limitless! Oh, the divine genius that is our creator... #possibilities #axolotlcuteness #wonderment #flyyourfreakflag #awe #connection #universeintelligence #childlikewonder #axolotl #lookslikepikachu #magic #gratitude #sanfrancisco #sanjose #losangeles #howispendmysunday
