The Inner Child
The small boy inside of myself always asks simple questions to the man on the outside.
He asked me yesterday "Why is the sky blue on a cloudless day ?”
I told him that I would find out and the best answer is :
"Sunlight reaches Earth's atmosphere and is scattered in all directions by all the gases and particles in the air. Blue light is scattered in all directions by the tiny molecules of air in Earth's atmosphere. Blue is scattered more than other colors because it travels as shorter, smaller waves. This is why we see a blue sky most of the time.”
That boy then told me that he knew why the black sky never falls down and he said it that it was nailed up and I asked him how did he know that it was nailed up ?
He said he had seen thousands of bright shiny nail heads when he looked up at the black sky at night.
Nail headed sky
So what questions does your inner child ask of you ?
