Childhood—is overrated. Only those who went through a life span’s miracles and hardships have developed a true sense of the world’s magic and meaning. I fully subscribe to what Viktor Kemplerer wrote on his diary of the Nazi years, January 1st, 1942—it was a Thursday: “It is said children still have a sense of wonder, later one becomes blunted—Nonsense . A child takes things for granted; only an old person, who thinks, is aware of the wondrous.”
