How many of us, I wonder, can recall
that childhood moment
when we experienced happiness as a state of being.
That single moment of untarnished joy.
That moment when
everything in our world,
inside and out
Everything was alright.
But now we’ve become a colony of adults
and everything is all wrong.
All the time! – Professor Niedorf
I can recall a childhood moment such as this. It was when I woke up at 3:30 AM on Christmas morning to sit on the heating register and be completely mesmerized by the Christmas tree and the sparkles it caused on the presents. I’ll never forget that moment and wrote about it in a previous post.
