While going through some old photographs, I found this image of myself as a child about to throw a rock in a creek. I immediately recalled that freedom of throwing a rock and making a splash, that feeling of being in the moment, that unconscious “I’m fine.” This is in contrast to how we use the term “I’m fine” to communicate as adults. What constitutes “fine” for an adult? Is it possible to get back to that childhood feeling of empowerment, to throw that rock and make that splash?
