The Imagination of Children

May 20, 2013 § Leave a comment

Three years ago my partner underwent proton radiation on his right eye to destroy a malignant tumor. He lost the vision of this eye and, over time, this dead eye is shrinking and is being sort of absorbed into the body. Yet he has no cancer. Although this story sounds a bit dramatic it is not, and the point is not to turn it into one. I´m telling it because the other day our daughter – 6 years old- was looking intently into this disappearing eye and made a comment: Does this mean (the shrinking eye) that from now on you are going to be able to see inside of your body? Sooo cool!!

Is it not this a fantastic conclusion?
