Its easy to have fun

Sometimes stopping to observe something for a little while can make our experience of the ordinary – extraordinary. Our visit to the mall today was one such chance.

This mall has a water fountain with sculpture of children playing with the water.This reminds me of the time me and my sisters would go to create a splash in a stream near my grandma’s house in Kerala on warm summer evenings. For a while there we did not need expensive fancy toys or a large yard. The water became our playground and  our toy.

Later in another part of the same mall, I noticed some children observing another water fountain with great enthusiasm  and excitement.Talk about a case of art imitating life.

This one was not a big fancy fountain, nothing special one could say.

Children being children were happy observers. Every 90 seconds a tall spray of water would shoot up and the children would clap or shriek with joy.

 

A simple object can become a toy and a simple fountain in a mall that thousands pass by can become a source of fun for children.

As the Good Shepherd said about children, ” the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children” …..

Note to self: Although there is a lot that our children need to learn, we can learn a lesson in innocence from them. 🙂

Phir Milenge!!

  1. The girl sculpture in the first pic has such round cheeks 🙂 The last photo captures the joy of anticipation perfectly. It’s amazing how kids can remind us to simply enjoy.
