Behind the Story: Charlie and Ted The Space Guy


As everyone knows, our son is fascinated with space. A big fan of it. And he's constantly searching the skies for signs of (hopefully) intelligent life.

The idea of worlds within worlds is so interesting to me. After our recent trip to the Griffith Park Observatory and watching the planetarium show, I was inspired to write a story about Charlie's encounter with an inhabitant of one of those worlds within a world.

When you think about it, there are tiny microscopic worlds all around us. Just because we can't see them with the naked eye doesn't mean they aren't there. And they don't even know that we exist.

One day Charlie asked me about the sound that bacteria make as they're whooshing around doing bacteria things. This really knocked me out. I'd never considered the concept. Leave it to Charlie to give me some real food for thought. Yes, I thought, they must make noise as they're moving around doing their thing. It's just noise at the microscopic level, so we don't hear it.

The Universe is infinite, and really, when you think about it, so is our world when you break it down to its molecular and atomic forms.

This is a fun story and I hope you all enjoy it.
