Walid's Wanderings

Reflections on life, good-and-evil, family, humanity, and anything else that occurs to me, usually when I travel. Right now I am on a 6-year trip through Lebanon, the homeland I had never really lived in before.

Cody's Wisdom

Cody is going to be 4 this month.

Today he asked me :"Do kids become anything they want when they grow up?"

- "Well, yes, if they can work hard enough to become what they want."

- "OK, I want to be a firefighter, so do I have to work hard?"

- "You have to be pretty strong, but it's not as hard ..."

- "But, you know, when kids are as big as you are, then they do not want to be anything when they grow up anymore. They just want to be kids again."

Right he was!
