A Young Mind

Hanging with my nephews today reminded me of how important it is to stay inventive, to stay unattached to grown up assumptions and ideas.I think it was the moment in this photo. I took a couple of snaps on my phone and they were hamming it up. For one shot the older nephew Charlie said: “I’ll pretend I’m asleep.” Max, his younger brother by 4 years said: “Ok, and I’ll lay on you.” He did, then stuck out his tongue spontaneously.At almost five years old he was able to invent a moment just by trying to be different and a bit silly. I can really identify with that.

Thanks, I love you guys.
