Yesterday I caught the most adorable interaction between a small puppy and a rustling leaf. The puppy would bark at it, pounce on it and chase it when the wind blew. To say I was captivated and joyful is an understatement. The pure innocence and determination of this playful creature was such a pleasure to watch. I made a commitment to myself to become more aware of the quality of innocence in all living beings. By proclaiming someone’s innocence, I will be less likely compelled to judge.
