In Lieu of a 'Real' Post...

Enjoy this lovely quote from one of the articles I am reading this weekend:

"Nature wants children to be children before they are men. If we deliberately depart from this order, we shall get premature fruits which are neither ripe nor well flavored and which soon decay. We shall have youthful sages and grown up children. Childhood has ways of seeing, thinking, and feeling, peculiar to itself; nothing can be more foolish than to substitute our ways for them."

-Jean Jacques Rousseau

P.S. A very special shout-out to my regular readers in Pelotas, Brazil and San Francisco, USA! You guys are cool!
