A Picture of Purposeful Engagement

This is a picture of my kids from a number of years ago.  It sits on a shelf above the stove where I was making tea in the kitchen this morning.  It occurred to me that this is a picture of purposeful engagement in meaningful work.  Do you think so too?  Why?

  1. Julie,
    What a wonderful picture. And, yes, it does get the essence of meaningful engagement, real hands-on work (and play).

    Thanks for sharing,

    • Thanks, Mike! What specifically do you think it is about what they’re doing – or how or why they’re doing it – that depicts purposeful engagement in meaningful work? I think it will be interesting to see what Uncommon Readers point to in terms of “evidence”. Thoughts?
