That new thing

Today our son, Dowan, found a tiny, slightly bouncy ball that captivated his heart and soul. He played catch with anyone who would throw it to him, on land, in water, kid, adult, it didn’t matter. When he figured out how to bounce the ball against the pool wall and back to himself, all the better. I was highly amused by the sheer delight that permeated his ten-month-old self. It reminded me of the hyper focus of someone in a new relationship or the excitement I see in students who have just found their favorite book series or a new app that was seemingly developed just for them.

When was the last time you found that new thing?
