A Reflection with Mia
By Carli Muñoz
As Mia my 9-year-old daughter (at the time of this writing) and I were returning from a walk in the park, she asked me what I was thinking. Perhaps using slightly different words, but essentially this is what I replied to her: “Although I often ponder about endless philosophical issues, at the end of the day I don’t care so much for meanings or answers—the query is good enough for me. What does mean a lot to me is taking the time for being still enough to soak in awe the beauty and language of nature and rejoicing upon the goodwill of people around me—and that is something I can live happily with!
