One day, my daughter asked me,〝Why you often say it’s a way out of no way, what do you mean?〞
It’s hard to answer and I got choked. “That means daddy has got to do something, even though I have no ways and means at all.” Looking at her lovely face, I began to admire children’s innocence.
Thinking over it, I found a contrast. It’s a big deal for children whether to gain an encouraging flower or get along well with other little friends, while we considered it’s just a bagatelle. Meanwhile, they could just say “there’s no way at all” to what terribly bothered us.
I should thank my daughter; she made me throw all the contradictions and difficulties suddenly. Anyway, there could always be one way to Rome.
What children cared most was friendship, honesty, and understanding, they were much easier to be happy with satisfaction. However, we often took pretenses for benefits, since when were we not a child any longer?
My daughter had changed her attention to Barbe doll while I was still thinking about this.
