“And still, I loathed being a child. Plainly stated, being a child was not—as used to be said around the time I was a child—my bag. Childhood was a foreign country to me. Everyone has an internal age. A time in life when one is of not one’s best, then at the very least one’s most authentic self. When your outside and inside are in sync, and soma and psyche mesh as perfectly as they’re going to. I always felt that my internal clock was calibrated somewhere between 47 and 53 years old.”

A 1st grade school teacher had twenty-six students in her class. She presented each child in her classroom the 1st half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb. It’s hard to believe these were actually done by first graders. I am going to use this in poetry workshops under “use of the imagination.”(source)
