In many ways, I feel as though I’m revisiting my childhood by being back in Canada. I’m in my childhood home again and have had the greatest fun exploring all our little nooks, crannies and not-so-secret forts. I’ve unearthed childhood treasures and looked through scrapbooks, old school papers, art projects, high school mementos, lost pictures, posters and stuffed toys. It’s hard to imagine that girl from so long ago until I hold these things in my hands.
This got me to thinking about this picture that I took on Green Island in Taiwan last summer. I couldn’t help but laugh when I saw these two little tykes take this hill head on. They rolled until they were dizzy and then rolled some more. Remember when this was fun? I thought I’d never be too old to enjoy being a kid and now I wish I had obeyed my impulse to have a go at it myself….
I might not have rolled down that hill but the child in me is still there.
Where ever you go, go with all your heart.
