My 15 month old nephew walked off the couch recently. I was sitting there and saw his eyes not working through how to crawl down off the couch so I snatched his little hand and held it as if he were going to walk down steps. Sure enough, he walked off the couch like there was a step below him, only the floor was a solid 18″ below. It was a graceful landing and all was well.
How often are we deliberately ignorant of our next step?
How often is someone nearby watching our thoughts to see we’ve misjudged?
How often is a hand extended?
