<at the airport , but actually it's really take 1, 'cos I wrote this before I wrote the previous post ... but you know, whatever...> How/why am I feeling so … disappointed?
Let me count the ways.
& not just disappointed, either.
- Sick at heart
But only when I’m thinking.
I need to stop thinking.
Children are still so innocent
Their voices high & sweet
Their curiosity & questions endless
Their questions (mostly) easy to find satisfactory answers to.
& I can be like a child too.
Sitting, watching planes take off & land.
I think I’ll do that, shall I?
‘Quote of the day’ with this post: “Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.” Helen Keller (1940)
