This is just lovely. The documentary “Walking Before Walking” is a father’s field notes on bringing his young son on hikes in the wilderness. Watch and enjoy."Babies are masters at absorbing the world through all their senses. In the New Yorker Documentary “Walking Before Walking,” the director Adam Amir’s infant son, Rumi, stares at his surroundings, rapt. He rakes his fingers through pebbles and kelp. He coughs on a mouthful of crumbling bark from an ancient Douglas fir, then goes back for more."

We took a weekend backpacking hike along the Appalachian Trail with our young kids (3 and 4). I had made a plan to reach a shelter as our overnight camping location. About 3 hours into our hike I new we were behind my schedule to reach the shelter. I had been urging the kids to keep moving but it was not working. It was at that point that I decided to give up my plan/schedule and to just go at the kids pace. That was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. It slowed me down. I enjoyed going slow, noticing everything all around me, observing my kids as they stopped to look and feel and listen to their surroundings. I came to realize this as what is now called mindfulness. This was over 50 years ago and I and they enjoy a special bond with nature as part of our lives.

Thank you for sharing. Through a child's eyes is a special way to experience nature. I taught primary grade for decades, and saw the world through the eyes of children. It is a blessing.
