Thank you for that! That's a fabulous idea. I really think he would love that! When he was really little I used to buy them picture books of higher quality. They were from our town's Unitarian Church's bookstore in fact. So many of them were about love and appreciation, equality, appreciating differences, vague spirituality (in a good way) and loving the Earth and mediation. One book was all about little tiny children meditating and it was so darned cute. He used to stare at those pages and then one day we all went to one of the local pumpkin farms in October where they have food, mazes, hay rides etc. He was about 4. I had a bunch of kids with me and they were all crawling through this one huge stack of multiple hay bales with tunnels underneath. After a while I couldn't find him and eventually I found him sitting on top of all the bales of hay under the bright, crisp blue sky in something of a lotus medication position with his hands in a mudra position (I had to look that word up right now - wasn't sure what you call it)! He was all zen up there it was kinda amazing! Thank you for not minding my verbosity. I hate it about myself but can't seem to stop it (and I type fast)!!
he sounds very much like our daughter. When she was little, (about 5 or 6, I think), we had a very large rock (boulder type of a rock) in our backyard. She use to sit there all the time, also very "zenned" out. My hubby & I would watch her sitting there and she would sit there for a very long time, which was amazing, as she also was ADHD.
Anyway, one time we asked her why she was sitting there and what she was thinking about when she did sit there and she replied to us, "Its my "thoughtful" place." We always (my hub & I) remember that and it still to this day, nearly 30 yrs later, brings a smile to our faces.
Have you seen many of MY posts?! Lets just say, in HS, I was voted most loquacious. So no worries there, Ayram. I think I still have you beat! I'm also a very fast typist. When I was in HS taking typing, our school was only beginning to get electric typewriters and we only had about 4 or 5 in a class of 30 students. So, the teacher would assign us to various typewriters. My first round was with a typewriter that was around since the 1920s. (honest!). I hated that typewriter, however, as I moved along to the "newer" typewriters, and the last set of students at the new and wonderful ELECTRIC typewriters--was myself and a few others. It actually turned out great, because we all ended up as the fastest typists in the class--and if I recall properly--I was either #1 or #2. It was great when I applied for jobs and had to take the typing test, because I always typed very fast w/o any errors.
Here's that book with children meditating.
What a lovely book!
