Grandson Nate was interviewing me via Skype for a school assignment yesterday. As I responded to questions about my childhood, I got a kick out of watching nine-year-old Nate’s unconscious mouth gymnastics as he concentrated on writing down answers to the questions.
“Walter, come watch Nate’s mouth,” I whispered to Hubby. On the screen Nate’s mouth immediately quirked into the tiniest of smiles. I was busted.
“You heard that, didn’t you,” I asked.
“Sort of,” he said. Evidently that microphone in the MacBook Pro picks up much better than I had realized.
But a quick visit with a grandson via Skype is much better than no visit at all, even if I was caught in the act of gushing over said grandson’s endearing mannerism’s.
Youngsters involve their entire bodies when they are concentrating. That really is totally living in the moment.
Nate concentrates, totally in an October 2013 moment.
