The “layout” of the story.

My dogs and I neared a small tree located in a corner of a neighborhood backyard. A small voice emanated from behind the tree, its source unseen. Though highly animated, the child’s words weren’t entirely clear, but a story was being told. We passed the tree to find a small boy, maybe four years old, laying rocks in a pattern in the cement rain gutter that sloped toward the street. He finally looked up at me, stopped his narration, smiled and said, “Hi.” I replied in the same and moved on. The storytelling resumed.

I smiled, knowing the art of storytelling and the imagination of dreams is alive and in good hands. I hope he is allowed to continue on his journey. As if to confirm my wishes, I noticed the cloud formation pictured below. Located between the two trees (straight up from the last fence post,) I saw a bear reading a book. I hope you can see it to.


Can you see the bear reading a book?
