Of the Child and the Man
Updated: Aug 17
Watching kids in a nearby playground from my living room window, I am reminded of a comment by Theodore Roosevelt. He observed that the child is father to the man, in as much as his individuality is separate to that of the man he becomes.
On one hand I agree. I little recognise the boy I was 7 years ago, let alone 17 years (I think life, love, and running a company changes us all?). But I do still share the same love for stories, for music, for history, and for investment.
When I weigh these in the balance I'm definitely different. I feel the key here is that we share similiarities, as everyone does with everyone else (including you and I, dear reader). But ultimately for the reasons I gave earlier, and because I choose to be, I am different.
