The truth as understood by a child

The mind soars and is convinced it is in the body of a bird. It zips and dives, swerves and glides, and hardly notices its reflection in the sea doing all that it is doing. The reflection smiles and reaches out as the mind comes zooming in. The mind then becomes a part of the reflection and thinks, 'I am a fish under the ripples and the waves. I am the truth.'

This is when a voice travels from a table a few feet behind, 'Come her at once. daddy is waiting with the camera for a selfie with the setting sun.'

The child stands there and allows his hands to wave a no and remains poised to take a leap from the present.
