I walk into the grocery store, drive by Ashley Pond and meander down the sidewalks of Los Alamos almost every day, but recently I questioned just how much I see my surroundings.
A few hours spent with my oldest nephew opened my eyes to everything this community offers.
Saturday, my sister took her daughter to a ballet show, dropped her youngest son at our parent’s house while Connor hung out with me for a few hours.
When his sister and mother drove off, I led Connor down to Ashley Pond to feed the ducks and geese bits of leftover stale pita bread that was in my fridge.
After we watched the geese and the ducks gobble down the bits of bread, my nephew pointed out “Corky,” the colt sculpture. Previously I had not given this particular piece of art any attention. Additionally, Connor showed me his favorite sculpture, a fish that appears to be diving into the pond’s waters on a bronze arch. I gazed at the fish, noticing for the first time that it had circular discs for its scales.
I realized that I take a lot around this town for granted – and it was a 5-year-old who pulled back the curtain on all that I have missed.
