Monday thought of the week: to flame again

A thought:

While we are born with curiosity and wonder
and our early years full of the adventure they bring,
I know such inherent joys are often lost.
I also know that, being deep within us,
their latent glow can be fanned to flame again
by awareness and an open mind.

– Sigurd Olson, from Listening Point (1958)
