Lily and I were siting while Lily played with some trains. She picked up a wooden traffic light and said “green is go”, “red is stop” and then she pointed at the yellow and stopped. She stopped and her gaze went to an unmistakable thinking gaze. I started to suggest something and she raised her hand to interrupt me and said:
“I am thinking”
I then counted off in my head fifteen seconds of silence while she thought deeply. Afterwards she moved on to something else, but I was left wondering, what the heck was she thinking about, I mean what was coursing through her head during those fifteen seconds?
I was fascinated by it all.
