I was sat watching my 9-year-old yesterday, just sat there on the sofa, a book in her lap that she wasn’t reading. A flicker of a smile on her face, staring off into space. I hesitated, I nearly broke the daydream by asking her something pointless like ‘have you finished you homework’ when I stopped.
Why break that moment?
I remember my daytime dreams being almost recuperative. A time for my brain to move in to a fantasy land of wishes and hopes. Do I daydream now? No, I don’t think I do!
Is it because I’m too busy, or is it because my brain just doesn’t work like that anymore. I honestly can’t remember the last time I daydreamed. Our lives are so over stimulated, too much noise and stuff happening. It got me to thinking, do I ever just sit there and just be?Let my mind escape the rush, the noise and stress of modern-day life. Turn everything off….even twitter.
And just be.
My daughter was happy, whatever it was that she thinking about was filling her with happiness. That makes me so very happy.
