“Look, I can make a star”, my sons’ friend told me. Her first attempts were clumsy, but she finally produced a star- something I’d never learnt to do when I was addicted to cats’ cradle.
When I got home, I cut out a length of twine, to see how much I remembered- I had forgotten most of it, but a lot came back to me. I stored it up to teach the kids. Isn’t it marvelous that despite all the electronic distractions available to them, kids today are still fascinated by the things that we loved when we were young?
