- Samuel Butler, capturing in his 19th Century notebooks, a truth my daughter taught me in 2002, when she was a toddler and was never “glad enough to let the matter drop” after hearing “the answer to two or three ‘whys’”
It’s not that she wouldn’t take “Wow. I actually don’t know why that is” for an answer. She would. She seemed to love that just one question asked persistently could basically blow my mind and make my world as fresh, unfathomable, and boundless as hers.
I’d never met anyone like her. “Good times” does not begin to cover it.
