It was a beautiful day. The sun was shining brightly, and a gentle breeze was blowing through the meadow. A young raccoon had been playing in the meadow and was having fun. As this perfect day was coming to a close, he was called by his grandma that it was time to come in for dinner. As he went to his grandparents' house, he saw his grandpa looking out in the distance very thoughtfully. He wondered what Grandpa was doing and what was he looking at. When the young raccoon got up to the porch, he asked curiously to his grandpa what he is doing. His grandpa replies to the young racoon that he is contemplating. The young racoon has never heard that word before or know what it means. What will his grandpa tell the young raccoon about contemplation?
