in motion

mind

The boy sat down to do his homework today, and with a little help from me, he figured out how to begin. 

"Off to a good start," we both said simultaneously.

He turned to me, eyes wide.  "Hey, we said the same thing just then!"

"Well, it is a good start."

"Great minds think alike!" he announced, clearly relishing the phrase.  "Great minds think alike."

"You like saying that, huh?"

"It's a good way," he pointed out, "to make yourself feel like a great mind."
