In the last three months or so, Juliet has:

  1. begun to notice (and laugh delightedly at) recursion, such as when the ending of "Seven Chinese Sisters" has the seventh sister reading an earlier page of "Seven Chinese Sisters" to a cluster of youngsters.
  2. asked me, "What is the biggest number?"
  3. asked me, "What if all the people died?"
  4. asked me, "What happens after you die?"
  5. today, she asked me, "How do I know I'm not dreaming?"

I did ok on the first four topics, but on the fifth one I'm afraid I didn't do very well. Actually, to be honest, Juliet said as much. Your assistance with these inquiries is appreciated.
