A quiet moment in our home. My twins Luce and Theo sitting together watching television. They’re aware of each other but ignore me.
Theo glances at Luce. What is he thinking? I wonder.
Maybe about doing ‘nothing’ together.
…”But what I like doing best is Nothing.” “How do you do Nothing?” asked Pooh, after he had wondered for a long time. “Well, it’s when people call out at you just as you’re going off to do it, What are you going to do Christopher Robin, and you say, Oh, nothing, and you go and do it.” “Oh, I see,” said Pooh. “This is a nothing sort of thing that we’re doing right now.” AA Milne The House at Pooh Corner
And soon after Luce and Theo went upstairs to play. What are you doing? I called out to them as they left the room. Nothing, they replied together.
