Childhood-Gone But Not Forgotten



Happy childhood memories cross my mind. Those days are gone but not forgotten.

I find myself becoming cynical and I long to regain the hopeful spirit I had as a child.
I want to recapture the spirit of play and feeling of wonder with each new morsel of knowledge. I want to color and daydream and skip and laugh everyday.

It can be hard to squeeze the nature of a child into the responsible adult, but I am trying.
Taking photos has been one way to re-examine the world around me and see things in a new light.

There is wonder all around me just waiting to be discovered.

  1. I agree! We should all have/keep that childlike wonder and playfulness inside of us and especially at Christmas! At Christmas, I believe in Santa Claus. 😀

  2. I bee-lieve keeping that childhood wonder alive is what Jesus meant when He said we must come to Him as a little child. I find it necessary to step outside and watch the stars at night, or walk through a park and recapture vicariously that childlike wonder as I watch other children play. Sometimes it’s recaptured in a song like “Groovin'” or “It’s A Beautiful Mornin'”. Think I’ll put a scrolling banner on my laptop: “Recapture the Wonder.”
