“What is the distance between the earth and the stars?”
My five-year-old nephew asks, wide-eyed.
The rocking horse in his bedtime story book
Summons a unicorn and goes wherever it wishes.
“I want to ride on that horse and get to the stars.
I want to ask amma why she went away so far…”
[When my sister passed away in February, I told my nephews that she is a star now.]
