Sunday Secret

farviewOne of my favorite things to do, when I get the chance, is to lag behind my miniature precious family and watch them be who they are.  It might be that we’re walking to the ocean and I keep myself many strides behind them in order to give me a far view, a clear open view of the ones I spend each and every day with.  I like to have the experience of seeing them without me.  I like to have the experience of watching the way they move along, the two of them, in unison. And when I hang back like that I get a full shot into my chest of how separate, alone and together we are, until I run to catch up with them and they give me a full, detailed update on all the adventure they’ve just had.

Yours In Appropriate Sleuthiness,
Detective Dearheart

    I may need to hire you for my next case. I pay top rates.

    There are times when hanging back and getting a better perspective is all one really needs. Good thinking, Inspector Coop.

  3. I like watching my boys walk together. Especially when Jack’s tail is in full plume!

  4. So true! Sometimes we can stand back and see the scene of our life.
