"That's the real trouble with the world: too many people grow up. They forget. They don't remember what it's like to be twelve years old." -- Walt Disney
Oddly, a famous or well known Bible verse from Cornintians says
"When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned like a child. When I grew up, I put away childish things"
I see the validity of both: I pay my own bills (not like a child), my home is my own(not like a child) while I dream in color of a world without fear, with a life without disease (both more adult) while I HOPE we all live out some dream we have had. It's never to late to learn .Heck at almost 50, I'm working on my second Masters degree!
All that and I still ride a bicycle to get around!!
