"The world isn't just the way it is. It is how we understand it, no?"
- Yan Martel
The world isn't just the way it is. All children have the right to play. Pi is a little boy who sees the world differently.
He sometimes feels as though the other children don't get him. He is a bit tired of playgrounds having the same boring slides, and he has always been longing for something exciting.
Mom and Dad arrive to see a hilly landscape, but Pi sees a set of saucers on a mountain and runs off in excitement. He spots the gentle, winding path where other adults are strolling, but forgoes it to climb the grassy hillside to see a field of large craters.
MIST / IDENTIFY
Pi is first drawn to a crater where he saw children running around giggling to themselves. But there doesn’t seem to be anything inside the circular space. Odd, he thinks to himself. But the ground seems scatter with little black specks, and he kneels down for a closer look. Swoosh, as the sprinkler nozzles spray out mist. Cool, Pi says to himself, while the children around him are skipping happily to the beat of the spray. He will come back later, he decides.
