A Riddle

"What sees, but has no eyes, and speaks, but has no mouth?" asks the child. The parents, stumped, sat quietly. "A thought," answered the child.

Our son told us that he made up this riddle-- likely while he was not raising his hand to speak in class or  maybe when he was supposed to be spelling something correctly or perhaps when he wasn't listening to his mother call him to dinner. 

What we value and what is valuable are not the same things.
