A 9-Year-Old's Hidden Self

Why is it so hard to remember the taste of not knowing as a child?  If I'm lucky, a child's question may strike a chord of real communication such as you describe between Lobsang and Eve.
Is it enough to NOT prepare an answer to that innocence?

The faces of small children in supermarket shopping carts strike me with their seeming wonderment about all that surounds them.  They do not ask, they simply wonder, and occasionally I tune in to that wonder and am nourished by it.
