How I wish we could hold onto the innocence of childhood. There was never a worry, rarely a fear, and the world seemed such a bright and welcoming place! I’ve noticed as I grow older I am more scared to try new things, explore new things, and be daring. As a child I wouldn’t hesitate to jump off that 4′ retaining wall, heck I did jump off it many, many times, for no other reason than that it was fun. At 40-something, I would be scared to jump. I would instead look for the way around it, for the reason of being safe. Maybe somedays, I should just jump, because it’s fun!
