A matter of perspective

Kids and pigeons.

The cutest sight. Ever.

A runny-nosed, pink-cheeked, bundled up, four year old boy squealing as he chases pigeons that don’t seem scared, rather annoyed that they must fly 2 feet away only to have to do it again as the excited runny-nosed, pink-cheeked, bundled up four year old gets excited all over again.

His mother less so, as she is hurrying to get to where she needs to be.

But the ephemeral moment of bliss for this boy is worth pausing for. Smile and appreciate this moment, this unadulterated moment that involves only a pigeon, most don’t stop twice to think about.

Most are annoyed, disgusted by these “rats with wings”, but if we just observe kids and pigeons…

Our days might just slightly improve.
