Puddle Handshakes

Childhood is the world of miracle and wonder;
as if creation rose, bathed in the light,
out of the darkness,
utterly new and fresh and astonishing.
-Eugene Ionesco

"Mom, come here."
"Come shake hands with the puddle."
"With the puddle? How do I do that?"
"Stretch your hand out and slip it right into the puddle. Now move it around. There, now you've shaken hands with the puddle."
