Recently I was at a friend of mine, a grandfather of a 2 year old boy, like me, and I was impressed when I saw this boy. This boy of 2 years collects clocks, most of them wind up old clocks, some with the bells and hammer on top. He's got about 20 clocks in his bedroom, and my friend told me that it's the best toy you could give him.
Impressed as I am, this made re-visit my thoughts about my grandson, also of 2 years. He loves all toys and cares for them all, but I notice he has a special affection for jigsaw puzzles and is very good at them for his age. He gets angry when he's stuck and find it difficult to sort out, that will want someone to help him until it's done.
I am not trying to say these boys are special, I am sure all kids have their unique impressive behaviour, all we need is to notice them.
They say some people have been in lives ahead of their time, people like Da Vince, Einstein, Tesla, Mendel, and many more.
All this continues to make me wonder about someone who once said that we are born with talents earned from past lives. It was a TV documentary and showed a young kid, forgot his age but must have been under 5, who they said "was born a drummer". It showed a film of this boy performing like a professional popstar.
I'm sure you all heard of someone whom they say he was born a star, with special talents, but were do they come from?
