You know that moment when the children grow still, and they’re so intensely focused?
The Chagall works that we saw this week did that to the children. Every time, after an initial rush to explore and take it all in, they sat transfixed, amazed, quiet. For a half an hour or longer.
And I sat, too, grateful. A thousand moments of practicing with children: skills for observation, for empathy, for accessing our own response to the world, and now, look what we know.
