Richard Lewis understands how to see children, to come under the influence of a focused attention with them so that he can facilitate the journey into their own imaginations and develop their own voices.He also knows the results of the alchemy of that attention: poems and exchanges that show how children, and all of us, are capable of “turning the telescope around” and seeing the exterior world, including the inner feelings, sensations and thoughts.
No matter what cultural or belief background you and I come from, don’t we recognize that action, that gathering of attention so that we see the world in a way that goes beyond factualization, as an essential action for touching the divine?
