The Wonderful World of Childhood

One day when Shawn was sitting in the living room building with blocks, I thought to myself, he's having so much fun with little pieces of wood. And that thought got me thinking. When you're a child, curiosity is endless. You're constantly exploring, discovering new things. Boredom doesn't exist yet. If you find a flower growing in the grass, you'll sit there for minutes at a time touching it, feeling it, and when you pick it, there's more to the discovery. How does it come off? What is it and what does it do? The world is open to you and your eyes catch everything. Blocks can be so fascinating and when you grow up you look at it and say "Oh, that's not interesting, it's just wood." You forget the fun you had with it the previous years, when joy was easily found. But childhood innocence is a beautiful thing that you don't want to lose, so hold it tight and never let it go.
