On the promise of everlasting childhood

"In my soul, I am still that small child who did not care about anything else but the beautiful colors of a rainbow."
Papiha Ghosh


Your turn: How do you hold onto your childhood?

Hmmmm. That's a tough one. I didn't really have a childhood. I mean, obviously, I lived through my early years- but they weren't the kind anyone would want to hold on to.

I had the distinct pleasure of deciding to have a childhood in the Now. I play outside (in the mountains, on the rivers, on the rocks) and take delight in little things every. single. day.

In a way, it's better than having a childhood to look back on. Youth truly is wasted on the young...

I still don’t care about anything else but don’t seem to see the rainbow no more!

Much of my childhood I am glad to have left behind, but the sense of wonder when I am out enjoying nature -- THAT I have clung to with joy. And I am like a little kid when it comes to snow. I can't sleep if I am waiting for promised snowfall. I literally hop up and down when we get a good dumping of the white stuff. I've yet to be sick and tired of it. Snow makes everything clean and bright and fresh-smelling. (Cars make it dirty and gray and disgusting, but that's not the fault of the snow.)
