Quote of the Week: Childhood


Do you remember what it was like to be a child? To have not a care in the world? To be taken care of? Every time I visit my family in New Haven, CT I remember what it's like to be a kid again. I remember playing with all the kids in my neighborhood. We'd all gather early in the morning and play until the street lights came on. Our days were filled with kickball, dodge ball, tag football, baseball, swimming, and manhunt (our version of hide and go seek which lasted for hours on end).

During the summer months I enjoyed visiting with my cousins. We all lived in different cities, so we could only see each other during the summer and on holidays. We'd come up with a master plan so that we could spend the entire summer together. Our parents would drive us from city to city. How fun! I miss those days.

Oh, and money, our primary and only goal for money was to buy candy. We'd all pull our money together to buy as much candy as we could and make a trip to our local drugstore.

One thing I loved most as a child was jigsaw puzzles. Yes, I was(/am) a nerd. I think I want to get back to that. Now, I just have to find a good puzzle.

“The things which the child loves remain in the domain of the heart until old age. The most beautiful thing in life is that our souls remaining over the places where we once enjoyed ourselves” —Kahlil Gibran

“The essence of childhood, of course, is play, which my friends and I did endlessly on streets that we reluctantly shared with traffic.” —Bill Cosby

“Childhood is that wonderful time of life when all you need to do to lose weight is take a bath.” —Richard Zera
