In response to the Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: Future. This is a picture of my son completely engrossed in a video about science. I know he was engrossed because when I took this picture of him, he didn’t stop watching to pull the goofiest face he could think of. I don’t even think he noticed I was there.
When I look at this photo, I see wonder and fascination. I see a child realizing that the world is beautiful and complex, mysterious and simple. I see the desire to discover. I look at this picture, and I see the future.
