The curious mind of a child...

shadows - children looking at their shadows

I took a break from answering discussions here on myLot, and thought of washing the dishes first. The kid in me arose again as I began to play with the soap and made bubbles with it. And then suddenly I remember how foolish I was as a child to think that people can be contained inside the bubbles and lifted up in the air as what I have seen on tv shows and movies. Then I realized that I had a lot of silly, innocent questions and thoughts when I was a kid. Like why the moon was following us? How did the sun know that it's time for her to shine and for the moon to rest? Did the people inside the TV also see us? Why do ants walk on a single line? Why do we have shadows? Are they what others call our "conscience"? Just some random thoughts inside a child's curious mind which were later on answered as I grew up. How about you, did you ever wonder about anything and everything around you when you were still a kid? I'd appreciate if you answer too coz I'd think I was the only one silly enough to wonder about these things. Lol:p

Why, I am a good girl! I think there's nothing wrong with acting like a kid sometimes. I believe there will always be that "little kid" inside of us and anyone who entertains that idea means he/she is in touch with him/herself. Besides, life is too short to be serious all the time, kavinpurams. But thanks anyways for your thoughts!

I used to wonder stuff like that too, I have pictures I drew as a teenager of different worlds in bubbles and raindrops. was at the other side of the door - was it the same if I opened it or someone else? how do colours look to other people, if you were always told red was blue what colour was it really? why does the sun shine in the day when the light would be useful at night? did the little people in the Tv like living in our lounge - I knew they could see us? Why do bacon, onions and mushrooms smell so good when they're cooking - far better than they taste? I had loads, some still unknown, lol.
