Haiku #74


Today's lesson is:
When he starts running away
don't chase him--follow

Eli was determined today to wander away from our beach spot. Walking or running, he was determined to get away. Eventually I just followed him to an abandoned sand castle as far from the water as he could manage. He sat down and pointed to a spot next to him for me to sit. There we sat. No talking, just digging our hands and feet in the sand together. After a few minutes of beachy white noise he was content going back. Lesson learned. Thanks, Love.
