Listen To Life

Do you run?

Among the 40 or so family members I enjoyed time with at the beach recently were some babies.  Now hopefully my wife and I are not eligible for birthing babies because that’s best done by younger people with more energy and less understanding of why some species eat their young.  But seriously, I love babies, enjoyed being one myself, and our two daughters when they were younger.

I spent those few hours looking at everything around me from different prospective and position.
