My hands help me to understand the world I'm seeing. My taste-buds are not always so helpful in my quest for understanding. But then again, my thirst for knowledge should not be confused with my wonder at solid food. Contemplation Takes so much effort and concentration And I'm so frustrated at the fact that my eyes refuse to stay open!! I don't know these words yet and by the time I do I'll have long forgotten all the things my early childhood had to say.
