The Ducky

March 22, 2013

We are playing in the baby pool. I need to clean the house, pay bills, organize.. Instead I feel the stillness.

I take the rubber ducky an walking him up the side of the pool. Then I perch him on the edge in front of the little one. He knocks the duck into the water.

I repeat the journey. He knocks him down again, again and again. He looks quite pleased. Finally he changes the story–no longer knocking the duck down but replicating the duck’s journey and elaborating on it.

Narrative
A story
Beautiful thing.
