The curious vortex absorbs me into the book of childhood and I am young again. How ridiculous it is for a grown up man to read this kind of books on such puerile subjects. I'm so fascinated that I can hardly wait to stop being a grown-up. It is the story of a journey; of searching for lost memories, and I am drawn into an adventure of a rediscovered childhood. I am sucked in the rabbit's hole; I'm not even afraid to grow up in the end, because I've never forgotten how to return. When I grow up, I want to remember how to be young.
