One of the great joys of fatherhood is learning so much theology from watching our little boys. Athanasius (2) recently took to seeing animals and objects in the clouds. The funny thing is we had never taught him this, or suggested it. My conclusion: we are born metaphor-makers. It is a design feature to look at one thing and see another in it. Metaphor-making is a (if not the) primary way of human knowing/naming the world; apparently it starts at age 2.
