Thanks, Frank. I remember as a kid looking at maps to see if my corner of the world was there. And I remember the glow of pride I felt when I found an encyclopedia article on my home town. This kid's search probably goes deeper than any of that.

A small child wonders
At the odd shapes of landscapes
The spinning globe stops

Much love...
