Day 2100: A Child’s View

If you’ve viewed my blog before, you might know that I often find my title and my theme from something I’ve viewed the day before.


“A Child’s View” reminds me of the concept of Beginner’s Mind, which I wrote about here, five and a half years ago.

I like using a child’s view and beginner’s mind, which help me get in touch with wonder, openness,  optimism, eagerness, and non-judgment.  Do you see any of those in my views from yesterday? (If you need a better view of anything, just click on it.)


As I view the week and the new month ahead, I try to keep a child’s view and beginner’s mind. I shall also remind the inner child in myself and in others to let go of fear and to be open to whatever happens.

“Searching” from Child’s View by Nobukazu Takemura  has a surprisingly low number of views on YouTube.

What’s your view of today’s post?

It’s time to view my thanks to all who helped me create this post and to you — of course! — for viewing it.

  1. Thank you, Ann, for the reminder about keeping eyes open to possibilities and wonder.

  2. All gorgeous pictures Ann and I love the sign about empty.

  3. I love the steps leading down to–or up from–the water. The idea of a child’s view reminds me of the original music video for “Genius Of Love” by Tom Tom Club. The artwork was based on the work of artist James Rizzi who said he believed there was nothing more beautiful than a child’s drawing, and he tried to capture that in his art.

  4. Thanks for the reminder, Anne – as a children’s writer, it’s essential for me to keep a child’s view!

  5. Children have a unique way of viewing the world, this I see when Leo tells me about stuff

  6. Beautiful pictures! Always enjoy your blog.

  7. I love the photo of the steps leading down to the water. How inviting! And thank you for reminding me that the beginners mind is an invitation to letting go of fear. I think fear is being “fanned” from many sectors and I recognize how easily I am influenced. Thank you, Ann.

  8. ANNmazing post as always! (⺣◡⺣)♡♡♡

  9. Balloons, scarecrows, skeletons, spooks – the world of childhood
