6:15 am. The sun just rising. Humans see the world through routine dimmed eyes. Bob looks at the world afresh each morning. Sparrows, squirrels, the new road sign, the donkeys at the crossroads - all are a source of amazement. Not bad to be four and a half years old and live a life where wonder and marvel start before breakfast. Bob knows today is going to be the best day ever - by miles. I tell him man walked on the moon for the first time on this day in 1969. He seems unimpressed. His sisters too busy foraging for discarded owl kill to have an opinion.
