Genius of a 6 Year Old

So Eva and I were watching the Travel Channel -- a show about  Austria.  Snuggled on the couch, I pointed out some of the places I've been and shared some of my experience, perhaps disagreeing with the show's host on occasion.

Eva turned towards me,
"Pookie, why do you and Grampsy travel so much?"
"Well, I guess I just want to see what's out there. -- I'm curious."
She thought quietly.
She looked back towards the TV and said,
"Well.  If you sit still long enough, the world will come to you."

Then she popped her thumb in her mouth and snuggled in again.

I know that's profound, but I'm not smart enough to grasp it.

Out of the mouths of babes, she's incredible! You're gonna have to work hard to stay ahead of that little one Pookie.

Oh Eva! What a wonderful thought.

I think she misses her Pookie when she is away! Cherish those years with her!
