“Pan, who and what art thou?” he cried huskily.
“I’m youth, I’m joy,” Peter answered at a venture. I’m a little bird that has broken out of the egg.”
– J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan
Behind the scenes at a dance performance during the book fair on the grounds of the Crystal Palace.
At times I miss my youth, but I love the wisdom that comes with each passing day more. Like Peter Pan I’m a bird that has broken out of the egg and I’m learning to fly in a new country. Sometimes the headwinds are strong. Sometimes I glide in the thermals.
But the important thing is I jumped out of the nest and spread my wings.
