I took these shots of a bubble-blower and the children around him. John O’ Donohue describes childhood in the most beautiful way. He says:
“It is the forest of first encounters to which we can never again return. We have become too used to the world; wonder no longer animates us as it did then. There is so much we can find out about the magic of our souls by revisiting these memories of first acquaintance. Never again do we experience so directly and powerfully the surprise and the fresh tang of novelty.”
Imagine what would happen to us if we began to look at things as if we had encountered them for the first time.
