I was inspired by a poem by Sarah Kay titled If I should have a daughter. In her poem there is a line that says, “And I'm going to paint the solar system on the back of her hands so that she has to learn the entire universe before she can say “Oh, I know that like the back of my hand.” When I heard that line spoken I immediately had an image in my head that would illustrate the idea of knowing the universe like the back of your hand.
