    1. No, I don’t have a list. I just make them up as I go. Yesterday’s one was : What is the most beautiful sound in the world?
      The big idea is to try to see the world through the eyes of the person answering the question. We all walk around experiencing the world differently and if we are curious about what other people see, our own view of the world is enhanced and that in turn will lead to being able to put ourselves in other people’s shoes.
