Thanks, Stephen.

I'm pretty sure Chesterton was on to this. Didn't he say something about kids saying "do it again" with splendor and joy that adults miss? Maybe Puddleglum in the Narnia series is a picture of an adult life w/o narrow vision.

If you want to see this black and white picture you posted in action, watch the face of your child as she/he watches a spider spin a web on a flower.

Thanks again,
shane

GKC was indeed on to this well before today's neuroscientists. We could all do with more sense of childlike wonder.

Thanks for stopping by!
