Jack, I don’t think this is naive at all. There’s something about the purity, the innocence of childhood, that life spark that hasn’t been beat up by life that still retains that unfettered connection to the Divine.
I love this piece. It’s an important piece.
I’m curious, who did you write it for? Who did you have in mind while writing it? Because it certainly comes across as if it were a handwritten letter that was addressed, stamped, and mailed only to me.
