Sushi



Do you ever stop to wonder how much of the world you just don't see any more? How much of it you see without actually ever processing it? I was reminded of this when Buttercup brought this picture to me. "Here, Mom, This picture is called "Sushi"", she said as she handed it to me and cheerfully headed off to her next adventure. I didn't actually pay attention at first. I said my "thank you" and praised her and never really took my attention from what I was doing. It was later that I realized how astounding children are. What you can't know is that we don't eat sushi, we don't eat fish at all, unless you count tunafish sandwiches. Never. No one. Ever. I have no idea where she got the idea for the square plates, the wasabi, or the California roll...but she drew quite an accurate rendition, didn't she? Proof positive they observe far more than we realize and a reminder of how much we might be missing each day.

hmmmm.... with some respect to how (not)observant I am, I would wonder if this refers more to specific children, like Buttercup......
