I get along well with most children and feel we can learn a lot from them. But the most important thing children teach us is to be ourselves. When I play with kids, I don’t feel the need to be serious. Life is more fun in that moment. They are playful, sometimes entertained even by the smallest things. Maybe it is because they see we’re happy with them that they return to us the happiness tenfold. At the end of the day, I’m left with a happy tiredness, not because they give a burden, but because old burdens were lifted.
