So the image I'm getting is that you can pour all kinds of stuff over
a permeable membrane, but only certain stuff gets through. And you
and your brother are similarly permeable?

It's true that he was less into books and fairy tales
than I was, but it isn't as if he was totally
uninterested. As for me, at about 10 yo I found and
glued a copy of St. Francis prayer on the wall by my
bed and would read it every night before sleep. So we
each in our own way got a little of everything that
was going on really. I think.
