53 Minutes to Spare

As trite as it may be, I think my outlook on life can be summarized by the beginning of Exupery's "The Little Prince":

Once, when I was six years old, I saw a magnificent picture in a book called "True Stories of the Virgin Forest". It showed a boa constrictor swallowing a wild beast... This made me think a lot about the adventures of the jungle and, eventually, I succeeded with a coloured pencil in making my first drawing... I showed my masterpiece to the grown-ups, and asked if the drawing frightened them.
"Why would a hat frighten anyone?" they answered.
My drawing was not of a hat. It was of a boa constrictor digesting an elephant. So then I drew the inside of the boa constrictor, for the benefit of the grown-ups. (Grown-ups always need explanations.)... the grown-ups now advised me to give up drawing boa constrictors, from the inside or the outside... Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves, and it is exhausting for children always and forever to be giving explanations.

Life is all about the simple pleasures.
I love playing with the world in naive innocence.
but i have no problem getting down to business. grrr.
