Included in this post is an unscripted recording I made of my Granddaughters, Eden and Ariadne, when they were staying with us recently. The recording was caught with my phone, so please excuse the variable quality and the low volume.
Very young children, Ariadne is three, have an amazing way of expressing themselves and learning language. For reasons known only to her, Ariadne decided that instead of asking “Why?”, she’d ask, “What’s the deal of?” When young children ask questions, I think it is our duty to answer them as comprehensively and truthfully as possible. You’ll also hear the voice of Eden and Ariadne’s Great Grandmother, who was also staying with us but has since returned to Africa – I miss you, Mom.
The best thing about good answers
is how they lead to better questions.

I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I do.
In case you’re interested, the principle character in Malmaxa is a form of Eden drawn from the ether before she was born. In many ways the resemblance is uncanny.
