I glanced back to see an R2D2 balloon
floating in the sky.
A reminder of childhood and my most recent birthday floating away twinkling in the sky like diamonds.
Childhood and adulthood locked in a tango.
Childhood stays with us even if we push it away or it escapes because it always comes back.
Wonder and the ability to see the beautiful discovery in life should remain with us even though it may be called childish.
Our childish selves can teach us.
Childhood is not gone forever even as an adult.
Nothing stays gone forever.
It all manifests eventually or never goes away to begin with.
