  • Even he is little, compared to other kids in his class, our hero was never worried. He just had a different point of view, different perspective to the world. Maybe because of that, he strongly believes that he should live in a bird house... He imagines that, if he is living at that height, he can understand the world more like an adult understands. In his imaginary, positive world, this is something good, something he looks up to.

    Little he knew, every one of the adults is already caged in a bird house of his/her own, secluded, alone, distant, arrogant, self centered.

    So, one day, he just tried to climb this bird house. Finally after long and tiring climb, he finally set eyes to the world. To his surprise, world seems like the ...same? ... Just little bit distant... He doesnt like the feeling, not at all.

    He doesnt want to live in a distant world, caged in a birdhouse, so he decided to stay as a kid.

    He still lives that way, age 35.
