182/365 - Very Personal Lesson - But I'll Share

My beautiful and brave tightrope walker!
Lesson Learned #1: Only now I have come to better understand that a child's make believe adventures have for them a "real" dose of fear - therefore I must display the "right" amount of concern and congratulations so that I don't hamper their willingness and ability to face life's "real" adventures.

Lesson Learned #2: Only now I have come to better understand that people are "children" forever and that I must display the "right" amount of concern and congratulations so that I don't hamper their willingness and ability to face life's "real" adventures.

Note- Picture of performer taken with my android phone while I was clinging to a swinging trapeze artist!

Annbramwell What a brave little soul she is, I am surprised that a supposedly responsible grandfather like you would let her risk life and limb just for a photo opportunity! even if you were dangling upsidedown to get it!

honzicek There is much more dept in B/W photos.
They trigger my imagination so easily and I’m looking at them again and again to see if I can find some more detail somewhere in the background that would tell me more….
Great photo Dan!

HoosierAtHeART Great shot and great lesson, it reminds me of a quote by Picasso "Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist" If we could only hang on to many of our childlike qualities.

lukesmom Love the photo and thanks for the lesson. Some days I need to be reminded of the childish qualities within. We can get so bogged down with adult stuff. Thanks!!!!

365edgar A while back I had a similar revelation while making a delivery at a nursing home. I was walking down the corridor when an elderly woman reached out and grabbed my shirt. She looked up from her wheelchair and started speaking to me in these amazing, cryptic rhymes. I didn't know what else to do, so I sat down on the floor beside her and did my best to carry on a rhyming conversation with her. Eventually, she looked at me and said bye-bye golden boy, then rolled off down the hall. In the years before she died we communicated in this way many times. Often I was the only person with whom she wasn't physically violent. To this day I think it was because I accepted her reality for what it was, and, instead of trying to convince her that what was real was something different than what she knew, I let her live in the world that was real to her. She was a fine lady indeed.
