At birth, I crawled across the grass, felt the wind in my hair and was open to all things.
As I grew, I realised what I liked and what I didn’t, realised what would hurt me and how to feel good.
Each time my thoughts evolved I created a building block which was carefully placed atop of those previously created.
By the time I was finished I sat in the highest tower of my glittering castle, untouched by nature, change or danger.
Outside, the world went on, morphing and surging before my very eyes.
I realised that I had built a castle to protect me from life’s troubles but had also removed myself from innovation and the experience of life itself.
