Autumn Morning


Recommended Posts

hey everyone, this probably doesnt belong in this section, ill gladly move it if instructed to by the elders. this morning dawned cool and still at about 7:30am, my 15 month old son woke early,as usual, and was in a very playful mood so i decided to take him into the back yard for a stroll, he is making the difficult transition from part time crawling to full time walking..lol. i held his hand and walked him around our back yard, its approxiamtely one acre with a dense forest at the east boundary. It was so still and quiet outside, nothing, no airplanes, no cars, no neighbors up yet, or at least none outside yet, as usual i held his hand for a few steps then let him go to see what he would to. he took about 5 steps toward the woods and then stopped and raised both hands up into the air and started to giggle, if you have kids, its the kind of giggle only a child of this age is privy to, and many of us have distant memories of, from our own childhood. At the same time i felt a very cool breeze blow in from the north, he turned his head toward the wind and smiled, closed his eyes when the wind hit them and just kept smiling, all of this with his arms still stretched above his head. i know this is just a coincidence, im not that spiritual and definitely dont believe my child has any supernatural powers, but the image, while very simple, left me awestruck. maybe just a combination of the atmosphere outside at that time of the morning and the fact i love him so much, made it a helluva morning for me. he stayed in that position for what seemed like an eternity, finally turned toward me after the breeze had passed, and flopped down on his backside and scampered back toward me, as i went down on one knee to pick him up, he smiled up at me and said very plainly......"wind,daddy...wind". I told him through only partially watering eyes, "thats right buddy, wind, thats exactly what that was."..........this is who we are....Gunslinger

To my good friend Gunslinger...your son is just as cute as i remember him last August when we met. I think that if we look hard enough, that there are magical times set aside for each of us with our children..thats the blessing they are...its whether or not we look hard enough..only when they get older do you begin to wonder....LOL

dont let these times slip by GS, treasure them, as i know you will because i know you are a wonderful, caring person..I can still remember my kids when they were in their cribs, when they were in diapers, when they used to fling their birthday cake around the house and giggle so innocently...very soon they will be at that age where they will start testing your resolve....

I can only hope that my son is as athletically inclined as your boys are 4th, i should be so lucky, thanks for the reply, it was just a strange occurrence this morning, for a few minutes i could swear i could see him literally soaking up that northern breeze and enjoying it just for what it was., take care amigo.

yes sir it does, like i mentioned to 4th, for a few moments it seemed as if he was actually soaking up that cool northern breeze, just enjoying it for what it was, no deeper meanings, no worries or preconceived notions, just a 15 month old boy exploring the world around him. It is something i think i will never forget., thanks for the reply sir.

So did I. I don't have kids yet, but I watch a little girl (2 years and half now) two nights a week, and it always makes the long days much, much sweeter.

thanks for your reply, its strange the power children seem to have, they just live in the moment, not worrying about tomorrow or yesterday, if i could keep my son this age forever i would, just so he wouldnt have to deal with anything except the exploration of his surroundings..take care noah, good to have met you.
