The other day, The Boy watched a movie that had a sad scene in it.That night, he climbed into bed with us. “Bad dream,” he explained, before flopping onto the covers and settling in next to us.Next morning, I asked him about it. He told me some of the dream’s storylines, and they were obviously connected to the movie.”I wondered if you should watch that,” I said. He has a tender heart and is affected by sad scenes.”Well, you know that everything I hear with my ears (pointer fingers indicating each ear), and everything I see with my eyes (pokes his eyes for a second, smooshing the lid a bit for effect), goes into my brain (thwap! He slaps the top of his head)!”That pretty much sums it up.It’s too bad more people don’t grasp that basic fact and let just about anything enter in.
Oh, Be Careful Little Eyes, What You See
