Ray tied her shoes last night!

She kept saying things like, “It’s too hard for my fingers.” But she laughed her way through the tricky process–success! I made her untie them and do it again–and she did it again!

She will probably have to learn it again today. Her fingers do not know how to see the shoelaces of themselves, and tying a shoelace isn’t logical in a way a brain can directly grasp, much the way the fourth dimension isn’t something the brain can directly grasp.

(Go ahead. Next time you tie your shoes, try to grasp the reason a shoelace knot works the same way you can grasp the way a donut works. You can work it out, but you can’t directly grab onto the idea and say, “Aha!”)
