Walking up the steps of an old iron bridge that I have walked over hundreds of times, I looked at it as a child. I remember crossing the old iron bridge at Roger Williams Park as a child. I remember our own sons crossing it when they were much younger.

It's a good practice. As an adult, I look at the iron scroll work. My adult senses calculate the amount of paint and time necessary to maintain the bridge.

A child considers the pattern of the scroll work and the texture of the bent iron. And then the hazy image of the swan boats comes into view. A child sees in wonder and awe. They appreciate the world and being alive for the miracle that it is. 

Does one need to be a child to have wide eyed wonder? No. But adults need to take time to consider the child's view. We need to take some time and consider the world with innocent eyes full of awe.
