Curiosity and wonder

Reflect No Comments

On a train…

Before 0700.

Usual commuter types.

Then mother and 18 month old daughter get on.

The child is full of life.

Loving the novelty.

Looking out the window – in wonder at the moving world.

Pointing and calling every man ‘daddy’ (much to the mothers embarrassment!)

This isn’t ‘normal’


No kids

No (visible) joy

No uber-curiosity – at least not externally demonstrated.

Rather, we are internally focused in sleep, the papers, laptops and blackberries.
