Thanks. Max ( the 8 year old) is on the spectrum, indeed, a savant with special gifts to give. He sends them my way quite often. Trying to catch them and learn with him, perhaps, revisit innocence.

Thanks for the tip. I just started to write in earnest a week or so ago. So lots to learn. The writing, though, is basically for me. On occasion really nice smart people connect on the other end. Someone described these as collisions. I love the idea or just the image of that. Some collisions create sparks. Thanks for yours and the advice about the image.

What would be a good image for wonderful human collisions and sparks?
