If you can create the feeling inside of what a child might feel whenever they take their – firsts, it is the feeling of wonder.
I would watch my children, and now my grandchildren and can create the feeling from the expression on their face – amazement, surprise and fear. Just recently my grand-daughter took her first steps on grass. She has just learned to walk. Surprise was in her face and fear as she stood like a statue. Then seeing encouragement from the adults she began walking. Then suddenly she was running and giggles pealed throughout the air.
I can’t wait until she walks in the snow for the first time. It will be the same. It will summon the feeling inside. Then I jot down the feeling.
That is the feeling of wonder. Watch a child’s first.
