The simple wonder on a child’s face is one of the most beautiful things on this earth. So natural is it to a child, like breathing, part of their very being; curiosity so strong.
Looking up at the sky with wide-eyes, not yet used to the ordinariness of the passing clouds of life. Everything fresh, a new experience, unencumbered by the weight of adulthood.
Oh, to carry the wonder of a child with you all of your life, that pure joy filling your every fibre. But, although we are heavy with responsibility there are still glimpses of this joy.
It is not lost. It is in a glorious sunset, the sound of the sea, the world through the eyes of your own child. Found in the fabric of life if only we choose to remember; to seek wonder.
Youth is happy because it has the ability to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old ~ Franz Kafka
