He makes it look easy to keep an open heart.

When I watch him play with new friends I think about how we all seem to be born with the notion that people are decent.
At this age, and on most days, Tollie occupies such an inviting space.  He is so fully aligned with himself that he has plenty of room for others.

I mean, he'll swing a golf club at a child who steals his ball.  But he doesn't hold grudges, doesn't pass judgment. He has an unclouded ability to connect and an indomitable expectation for good from every interaction.
