This still brings a smile to my face and my heart.
I stumbled upon this hopscotch grid while walking home through Central Park one day last week.
I can imagine the giggles, the excitement of running back to the beginning to do it again, the pure joy the at the children felt while they were playing this before I discovered it.
And, the energy that they left when they were done lingered all around me as I stood in this spot.
For a moment, all my concerns were washed away.
Honestly, I felt like I was 8 again.
I tossed a stone and hopped
I did it again.
As I walked away, I saw 2 other adults stop and play and I giggled out loud.
Ahh, the joy that those children shared with a little sidewalk chalk.
I smiled from deep within and I continued my walk home with that smile in my heart.
I am linking up with Kat at Kat Eye Studio and her Photo Heart Connection today. Each month she asks us to review the photos that we have taken during the past month and select the photo that speaks to our heart. Please visit her blog and stalk the other participants posts - the photos are amazing and the stories that have been written about them are touching.
