Leaves from Heaven

Do you look at leaves? Like really study their different colours and hues and structures and shapes?

I used not to have time for that. *chuckles*

Ok, fine.. I just didn't notice them.

But with a child, you tend to look at world's finer things i.e fluffy clouds and fallen leaves.

Yesterday, while strolling with his friend, Gooly picked up a leave, and with his head looking UP, he said," A leaf. It's from Heaven."

Look..heaven and sky, hell and die, aren't exactly famous topics between us. When he said it, he sounded tenderly sweet. I was curious why he said that.

The best time to discuss it was of course before bedtime. I fluffed up his pillow, and he plopped down comfortably. And I began..."Why did you say the leaf is from Heaven?"

"Because God made trees and God made leaves for everyone so we can breathe oxygen. God made them in Heaven."

So there is a little Science and a little religion thrown in together. It's good that he combines them both. Something like 'matter, anti-matter' theory (from Angels and Demons fiction).

I don't know.. amidst the craziness in the world, it's comforting to know my child believes and knows there is Heaven and God, and knows how to find logic in his own way.

Kids are innocent, non-skeptic, pro-believer. What happened to us? You...YOU ESPECIALLY!! :P

Prof, *holding book list* 'The Suicidal Rabbit' no more stock at the Bilik Koperasi...

Can we start with Hell-o instead? How about Sugarku, Rumahku?
