Well into the week of this writing exercise started by Marie, many of my fellow bloggers have noticed the S-factor, how we unintentionally sync our blog topics about the ordinary: bees, trees, flowers, moves, food, kittens and more. AnneMarie pointed this out in her recent post better than I ever could.
Today, at the risk of diverting “off-sync”, I choose to feature my two sons enjoying imaginative play in the cockpit of a jet. How considerate of pilots and co-pilots to give little boys the opportunity to sit in the commander’s seat. Maybe a pilot gave them this same opportunity when they were little, and inspired them to pursue their dream of aviator careers. All I know is, judging from the smiles on these boys’ faces, they surely appreciated the opportunity to assume the role of captain of their airship.
This ordinary gesture of kindness became extraordinary to these two pre-teen adventurers. And it helps remind me, a newly anointed captain of my own ship, to find opportunities to spark the imaginations of the young people all around me.
