The Child of Earth shows a little girl at a school Science Fair. She is reading a book. There are exhibits on tables up and down the aisle. People are milling about. The shiny tile floor reflects the lights. She is wearing a green sweater and shoes. This card is about the pursuit of knowledge. The girl is a student who is always open to learning something new. She is very curious about everything and loves to research new subjects. When we open ourselves to more of what the world has to offer we experience the growth and rewards of learning. Only by stretching our ideas and enhancing our talent can we grow towards our potential. At the Science Fair the girl is learning about her environment. The fair represents the accumulated knowledge available. She learns from experience and must see to believe. The book represents her focus on the search for information. She doesn’t give up until she finds the answers she seeks. Knowledge enlightens the mind like the lights illuminate the room.
