I used to babysit him and his little sister. Here you can see him sitting in his cardboard spaceship. We had a special chemistry together and he inspired me to explain things and answer his questions in a creative way. To him, it wasn't too important if I replied scientifically correct, I just made him feel that objects and everything around us has a story and a soul. We invented our own world, where our hands had magnetic power, especially when we had to cross streets. I told him to take care of me, since I sometimes forget how to be safe in traffic, so he was extra careful and felt proud to be the one helping me getting through the urban maze. We ordered hotdogs made of napkins and mustard and sausages and napkins and - again, a layer of napkins - and gave the vendors a reason to laugh. I kinda miss being with him, my congenial.
