“Perspective is worth 80 IQ points.” – Alan Kay
Our 2-year old niece and I were sitting in the car waiting for my wife the other night when a wonderfully inspiring thing occurred. This sweet little girl pressed her nose up close against the cold, frosty window and peered out into the darkness and said with great excitement, “Yay stars!”
She continued to stare out and up, as though she were being mesmerized by the clear night sky that lay before her. And then she repeated to herself, just above a whisper this time, “Yay stars.”
It was beautiful. A song, a poem, a reminder, a message – in two words from a two year old. Sometimes, words need not be plentiful to be just what you need.
