Lightning and Thunder of Childhood

When I was little, when there was lightning and thunder my dad told me the old Norse myth that it’s all about Odin and Thor and their buddies bowling with huge boulders in the heavens. Now whenever there’s lightning and thunder, I can still take myself back to that childhood state, when I could honestly believe without believing, and when I could see those gods and their boulders so vividly in my mind.

Childhood is a special time that doesn’t need to always be filled with cold reality and harsh logic. We can acquire that outlook later, but we only have a short window of opportunity for giving our children such treasures that will last them their whole life.
