When I grow up I want to be a kid again. I want to recover that innocence, spontaneity and simplicity. I want my reasoning to once again bring a smile to adults’ faces. And I want to be able to find a bunch of splendid moments in a bad day.

I’m sure that, after reading this article, you’ll also long for that feeling of sweetness that we sense when remembering those old times.

I love that devastating reasoning, that sense of justice, that transcendence, the ability to love, to forgive and thatability that kids have to enjoy.
