When was the last time you laid in the grass gazing stars,
built a fortress of solitude with furniture and blankets,
slayed an imaginary dragon to save the day,
stayed up too late laughing with friends,
snagged your shirt jumping a fence,
dove into a pond to test the depth,
took a walk out in the rain,
ran barefoot outside,
skinned your knee,
played in the mud,
got lost outside.
How long has it been since you let your inner-child out to play?
It’s been too long.
Your spirit longs to break free.
Let it roam wild.
“We are perishing for want of wonder, not for want of wonders.” –G.K. Chesterton
