#16 of 30: All grown up

Someone asked: “What is the moment that you leave childhood and enter adulthood? ” My response is, why would you want to?

Children are full of innocence and wonder – at least for a while. When they grow up, they lose that and the visceral sense of curiosity about everything encountered.

There is no one moment or even a specific behaviour that defines an adult. It has nothing to do with age; it has everything to do with attitude.

Personally I hope to retain the essence of childhood to my dying day – even though chronologically I’ve been an adult for a long time – long enough to have grandkids. Then again, they are helping me to keep a toe in childhood’s pond.
