I wonder, what do you think looking at this picture? Probably “Sweet little girl is watching a hot air balloon fly by”? Wrong. The sweet little girl is actually screening the ground for roly polies. She is very good on that.
When we are young, we want to know more about the world. We look in the heart of things and people seeking to recognize what they actually are; we thirst for detail. Eventually, we learn that things and people are seldom what they seem – still, we wonder.
Rob Thomas – Little Wonder
We notice and acknowledge big things, but it is the little things that hold our attention and feed our curiosity. Cognition and learning depend on our perception of little things.
Everybody has their own roly polies. Hope they are not worthless, mundane and selfish. Hope they are striking and very alive.
PS: Roly Poly Armadillidium vulgare
