There is nothing in the world that jolts me into the present moment more quickly and fully than to hear one of my son’s little pearls of wisdom or to ponder one of his big questions.

Today, he mused, “Isn’t it funny how the hands and thumbs are really opposite the feet and the big toes?” I started to think about that, but I figured he must be mixed up, because all of those digits are on the “inside” of the body.

Then he said, “I mean, on your hands, the thumbs are the shortest… but on your feet, the big toes are the longest.”

And there you have it.
