Reflections and Reality

“There is an alien in the sky.”

Paula needed excitement on a holiday, and this sounded like a perfect story.

“Well, is it speaking to you?”

“Not yet. See the dark reflection between the lights.. it is an unusual shape, stretching its tentacles.

I looked at the dark sky, and then the water Paula was focussed on. I saw a turtle waddling through. It could have been a crocodile or a shark to make the story enjoyable.

“Look up first, darling! You need to differentiate between reflections and reality.”

It was the first philosophical lesson for my five year old.
