July 1st, 2008

Quick thought:

I was watching Garrett pull himself up over and over again tonight. Yeah, he's standing now. Crazy. Anyway, I was watching him pull himself up and talk to himself, "Yah, yah, yah", in this high-pitched voice that he uses sometimes... To amuse himself maybe? And I thought to myself, at what point does one stop doing things just because he feels like it and start doing things to impress others? Or, at least, alter one's behavior because others are watching?

I mean, everything Garrett does now, at this point in his life, is completely pure. It's done because he's learning and just... Being. He's having fun and living life in an absolutely uncontaminated way.

So when does the other stuff start seeping in? Will he know it when it happens? Will I?

Well, I hope he can live life his own way as much as possible. I hope he has the strength to be himself no matter who's around.

Just a thought.
