Here’s a follow-on to the article about the young boy on the plane whose father confirmed that his drawing was a masterpiece. Going back through the notebook from that plane trip, I found several wonderful questions that he asked during the flight:

  • “Is this a masterpiece?”
  • “Who invented gravity?”
  • “Are we off the ground yet?” (This was probably 30 minutes into the flight!)
  • “Can butterflies fly this high?”
  • “Is there such a thing as eleventeen?”

Maybe it’s only because I’m not a parent that I found these questions so fun.

Nevertheless, we’d all think about things in exciting new ways if we could get ourselves to ask questions as unencumbered by our own experiences as this little boy could!
