Childlike Joie de vivre

aug 31 blog When my first book, "The Pattern", was about to be released a wise and trusted adviser asked me, “So Lynnclaire, what do you want to be when you grow up?”

My response was immediate, “Five.”

“No, get serious. What do you want to be in the world?”

Equally serious, my reply was “Five.

A bit frustrated he responded “Lynnclaire the world is going to be expecting a grown up.”

“David, what they expect is their problem.  I am a grown up and my supposed debut will find me engaging in the world with the curiosity, courage and joie de vivre that we rarely see except in 5-year olds, kids who haven’t yet had love, awe and wonder schooled out of their lives.”
