I appreciate your challenge. Let me start by saying that this isn't precisely 'on point' but close enough that I think it fits. It's the wonder that children have with things that are ordinary or things the rest of us find totally mundane. On a trip to New York last year, our son Joshua developed a fascination with a table lamp in our hotel room. There was nothing special about the lamp itself, but he examined it carefully from every angle for hours, studying exactly how the light emitted from it. He marvelled at it and as soon as we returned to our room, he would make a bee line for it. For the rest of us it was it was the excitement and glamour of New York City; for Josh it was that lamp.
