Madison's point of view

Madison Crawling
The world is different when you are on your hands and knees. Everything looks so much bigger, even bugs. Dogs and cats are peers.

Yes, we all crawl before we can walk. But, seeing Madison relate to her world makes me wonder if we loose something when we stand. When we crawl the blades of grass, ladybugs and carpet fibers touch our fingers. This makes it easy to stop and appreciate the little things that once we stand we trample. When we stand we gain mobility, but does this mobility come at a cost? For the rest of our lives are we ever as close to the earth as we are when it is in the palm of our hands?
