While on a walk recently, we stumbled upon a log covered in turkey tail mushrooms. My two-year-old, wide-eyed and in her leotard hiking clothes, proclaimed them “butterflies!” It brought to mind a Mason quote:

The flowers, it is true, are not new; but the children are; and it is the fault of their elders if every new flower they come upon is not to them a Picciola, a mystery of beauty to be watched from day to day with unspeakable awe and delight. (Vol. 1, p. 53)

Watching her explore this unfamiliar sight allowed me to see it with new eyes, through the lens of wonder and discovery.
