  • Innocents - no misspelling there. Those who are full of wonder, joy, rage, love, hope, curiosity, excitement, confusion and so many other emotions that they feel in the purest form. Perfect bliss. Perfect anger. Perfect curiosity.

    For a short while, our emotions are unadulterated by agenda or device. At the very beginning, we ARE all the possible emotions. Sometimes in quick succession. Sometimes one dominates another. But they are all there.

    We have not learned to hide them. We have not learned to wield them for our gain. We have not learned to use them against those we love and those we do not love. We have not learned to blame others for how we feel. We have not learned that life will trigger them - the good, the bad, and the ugly.

    We experience them all. We feel them all. We live them all.

    But only for a short while.
