There was something about the Earth that made the the boy stand in awe.

Something about the nature of it all.

Maybe it was how the rocks of the lithosphere could be just ordinary rocks - or how they could be gemstones of many different colours.

It could have been the way it’s stance was slightly tilted to one side. Twenty three point five degrees to be exact.

How it could rotate continuously.

And nothing could stop it.

Maybe the power of just being in the universe.

Perhaps it was how it could hold so many people and so much weight, yet float.

Whatever it was, the earth baffled him.
