Wanda's art class 2 / 汪達的美術課 2


小方下個星期要上小學,現在儼然是個小大人,從我們和書上得到許多知識,這應該是值得高興的事,可是同時有些東西不見了。

Von is going to start his elementary school life next week. He is a miniature adult now, having absorbed all sorts of knowledge from us and books. This should call for a celebration, but meanwhile, something is missing.

小楷三歲兩個月,最近突然變得很禮貌成熟,小朋友每天用快速的腳步往前邁進,大人要很敏感才能觀察到他們的獲得和失去。

Kai is three years and two months old. Lately he has become quite polite and mature. Children stride into adulthood at such a lightning pace that adults have to be very observant to see what they have gained and lost.

因為我一直覺得自己出生時就是個中年人,自以為比其他的小朋友成熟,一直到長大之後才知道我沒有他們的自由心靈,那是多麼可憐的事。所以當別人長大的同時,我學著當小孩,而且我要幫孩子們抓住那一份自由。

Born with a middle-aged mindset, I always looked at other kids with a little bit of disdain and indifference. It was not until I became an adult that I realized how pathetic it was to live without their free mind. So when others learn to become grown-ups, I learn to be a child. And I want to help children hold onto that freedom.
