Flow Free

As I drove towards Maine Friday, I looked in my rearview. Ariana was looking quietly out the window. I looked to Annika- she was looking back at me in the mirror, so I gave her a silent smile. She cocked her head and gave me the most beautiful smile back and it just melted me heart. Ariana broke my trance, "They have a huge field." I looked out the window and saw the bay as we neared the Maine border. There were ships & industrial buildings, but no fields.

"Who has huge fields?"

"Grammy & Grampy."

'Oh', I thought to myself. Where did that come from??? "What made you say that?"

"I was just thinking of going to their house, and in my head, I was thinking of when we get there and looking around and I noticed their big field."

She had just been sitting in the back seat, thinking freely, letting whatever might come into her head come. When is the last time you did that? Whenever I happen to have silence, my mind races... 'I have that door to paint... Ariana has dance tomorrow, did I pay my cable bill yet... I need to sign Ariana up for camp...' etc... etc...

I do not remember the last time I just sat and let my thoughts flow freely. That sounds so fun....
