I find myself in my later years reviewing my experiences throughout my younger days. Embarrassing, much of it, as I look back. I prevailed “in spite of it”, rather than “because of it”, doesn’t sit well with me. Too much information was withheld. And I was not taught things that I needed to know. Not everything can be learned from books; not even encyclopaedia. Sometimes, “Go, look it up!” leads to disastrous outcomes. Children do not think with the complexities of mature minds.
If not enough people are keeping track…well, it’s a wonder that some of us survived to adulthood.
