The Big Picture?
A very old one from the draft file. (Arthur, a former client, was four when this was written; Adam is my son, age 17.): Arthur presents Adam with a sheet of paper. "Look. I drawed an H and a D and an O. What does that say?" "Well, those letters in that order don't make a word. Not all the letters mix to make words. They have to be in just the right order, too." "I will go put in some more letters." Adam grins his lop-sided grin, the mischief grin. "You do that. Eventually you'll make a word, just like the monkeys on typewriters." ~~~~~~~~~~~~ © 2006, Mary P
