Out of the thousands of photos I snapped during the holidays this one of my nephew, Everett, is my favorite. Perhaps it's because his expression embodies everything that a happy, well-balanced childhood should produce - confidence, curiosity, hope, eagerness, and an impulse toward contemplation. The glint in his eyes gives me cause to consider that one's goal in life should not be to remain young for as long as possible but to retain, and even nurture, these "childish" qualities well into old age.
