Overheard while Punkin was teaching Little Man to set up dominoes upright so that they fall:
P: "You have to put them like this - close enough together so that when they fall, this one will knock that one down."
P: "No, no - not too close - that won't work either. It has to be just right."
It struck me when she said it - it's profound in a way. Close, but not too close. Always looking for the balance. Isn't that the way life is?
